The Newtown Police Department held a fundraiser Wednesday to raise money for the Connecticut Special Olympics.
The event was held at the Market Place Kitchen & Bar.
Organizers say all of the tips given to police will go to the Special Olympics of Connecticut.
"Events like this really just get the word out there that there are athletes right here in our community that need the support as well as the other communities around us," says Officer William Chapman. "Without events like this the athletes don’t get the chance to participate in some of the opportunities that Special Olympics has for them"
The 2018 Special Olympics summer games in Connecticut begin on June 8.
