Have you been craving a juicy steak and a succulent blooming onion?
You can head over to Outback Steakhouse from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. Wednesday to support the California Association of Highway Patrolmen Widows & Orphans Trust Fund.
The money raised at Tips for CHiPs allows children who have lost a parent in the line of duty to receive a college scholarship.
Shannon Ehly, the widow of CHP officer Mark Ehly, talked about the importance Widows & Orphans played in her life three and a half years ago.
"They were the first responders for us, they stepped up right away and just helped out with everything," Ehly said Tuesday on "First Look with Scott Cox."
Ehly thanked the Bakersfield CHP unit for becoming an extended family that supports her and her daughter, Morgan, when they need anything.
For $25, you can choose from steak, chicken or salmon served with bread, a blooming onion, salad, vegetables, mashed potatoes and dessert.
Local CHP officers will serve as waiters.
"This is your chance to send your food back as many times as you want, just to get back at a CHP officer that has previously given you a ticket," joked simulcast host Scott Cox.
Tickets can be purchased at the door. Take-out is available.
