A server at the IHOP in St. Charles, IL got a big surprise to start the New Year.
On Wednesday, celebrity couple Donnie Wahlberg and Jennie McCarthy had lunch at the restaurant chain and left a $2,020 tip!
This is extremely generous considering the bill only totaled to $76.00. Wahlberg’s wife, “Masked Singer” judge and former MTV host posted a photo of the bill on Twitter and sincerely wrote:
“@DonnieWahlberg starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is. #ihop #2020tipchallenge,” McCarthy tweeted.
Wahlberg wrote “Happy New Year” and “2020 Tip Challenge” with a smiley face at the bottom of the receipt.
The actor and New Kids on the Block performer reside in St. Charles with his lovely wife, McCarthy—who was born in Evergreen Park and attended Mother McAuley High School in Chicago.
Hundreds of replies on the tweet are thanking the actor for his generosity—entering the New Year!
