The Illinois State Police and local and county police officers are teaming up with Texas Roadhouse to raise money for the Special Olympics.
A fundraising lunch will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the Texas Roadhouse, located at 600 Riverside Drive, East Peoria. The menu will consist of pulled-pork sandwiches, corn, fresh-baked bread with honey-cinnamon butter, and non-alcoholic beverages, all served by local law enforcement officers. The event is free and open to the public, but patrons are asked to leave donations at their tables. All donations will go to Special Olympics Illinois.
