BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The 12th annual Tips for Chips benefiting CHP widows and orphans was held Wednesday.

The fundraiser is in memory of CHP officer Mark Ehly who died of a brain aneurysm. This year’s event was a drive-thru and drive-in that took place at Outback Steakhouse on Stockdale Highway.

“The CHP family has stepped up since losing my dad,” Ehly’s daughter Morgan Martin said. “They’ve been through major chapters of my life with me and I can’t thank them enough… It’s really nice getting together and getting to watch them serve the public in a different way.”

The $25 lunch included steak, chicken, Caesar salad, mashed potatoes, bread and cheesecake.
