Be Kind: Restaurant patrons lift servers' spirits with generous tips

PALMERTON, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- A group of regulars at a Lehigh Valley restaurant are helping to lift servers' spirits.

Erin McGinley was surprised when a group of familiar customers at Joey B's in Palmerton, Pennsylvania left behind three generous tips. The largest one was $1,000 on a $60 bill.

Attached to the receipt was a note that read "Cheers to a better year," she said.

At Joey B's, the servers split the tips, so everyone got a portion.

Most of the staff are college students who rely on the job to help pay their way through school.
