The 14th Annual Dunkin' Donuts Cop on a Rooftop event will take place Friday, May 20, 2016 from 5am to 2pm.

Please join the Lake Forest Police Department as we participate for the first time at the 620 Western Avenue location. While the building is not conducive to placing people on the roof, police personnel are dedicated to the cause and will be outside the store to meet and greet customers and collect donations of any size.

All donations benefit the Special Olympics Illinois and all donors receive a coupon for a free donut.

Any donations of $10 or more receive a Special Olympics Illinois coffee mug and a coupon for a free coffee!

Please come support your local police as we raise money for Special Olympics Illinois.
