NEW YORK: Actor Tom Selleck participated in the 2020 Tip Challenge. The news reports say Selleck left $2,020 as a tip in a restaurant in New York.
With the tip, the actor wrote a sweet note. It read: “For Elios, I am honoring my friend Donnie Wahlberg’s ‘Tip Challenge’ with my sincere hope for a better 2020, Thank you all.”
According to the report, the actor had kept it a secret. Selleck visited the restaurant in November and left the tip.
The actor who played Selleck’s son on a show, Donnie Wahlberg, also left a couple of tips this year.
In a tweet, Wahlberg said, “I found out that my TV Dad Tom Selleck has generously accepted the #2020TipChallenge at Elios Upper East Side, Love ya dad.” “I didn’t start it but I’m proud to be part of it,” Wahlberg added. “To those who gave even the smallest extra amount this year — THANK YOU.”
This tip trend started when a Michigan server received a $2,020 tip on a $23 bill. On New Year’s Day, Wahlberg got involved, leaving a $2,020 tip for a server at IHOP. Also in Nov, Wahlberg left a $2,020 tip on a $35.27 tab at a Massachusetts restaurant.
