There are times when the generosity of strangers leaves you speechless. Something unexpected and heartwarming happened to the staff at an Italian restaurant called Anthony’s in Paxon Hollow, Pennsylvania.
A restaurant employee was surprised when she received a tip of $ 5,000 (approximately 3.67 lakh). The waitress who received this tip is called Gianna DiAngelo. Gianna was understandably surprised by the gesture. She said she was happy to receive something and when they said $ 5,000 she couldn’t believe it.
Gianna decided to use this money for her college and “pay it up to do something good for others”.
According to CBS Philly, the restaurant manager said the tip was left by a group that frequently plays golf at Paxon Hollow, Pennsylvania.
