Donnie Wahlberg has a favorite waitress in one of his fave restaurants in Massachusetts, and hooked her up recently by hopping on an internet trend to help out service industry workers amid coronavirus.
It's the “2020 Tip Challenge," and the rules are simple, leave a tip of $2,020 – as in, the year 2020 – to your server next time you eat at a restaurant. The service industry has been hit hard by the pandemic, and this tipping trend, if you can afford it, is an effort to help workers make ends meet.
The "Blue Bloods" actor put a $2,020 tip on a $35.27 bill at a Marshland restaurant in Massachusetts...the check is pictured here, posted by the restaurant. Donnie included the #2020tipchallenge hashtag. How incredibly generous of him!
Donnie has been in the restaurant before and always asked for his favorite server, Denise Andrews, who always knows what he wants: steak tips with grilled asparagus and some poached eggs. But she didn't know about the big tip. When Donnie left, he said, ‘Denise you’re all set. The payment is on the table." Denise said he's always a good tipper, but her jaw dropped when she saw the amount of THIS tip. That Donnie Wahlberg is a good guy.
