She thought it was a $50 tip, it turns out it was a $5,000 tip from a well-known local businessman!

According to WCVB Channel 5 Boston, Jennifer Navaria was working her shift at the Seaglass Restaurant in Salisbury on a slow night and got an unbelievable surprise… a $5,000 tip from the popular car guy, Ernie Boch Jr.!  One of my favorite parts of this story is that Jennifer thought it was only a $50 tip at first.  Talk about a GOOD shock to find out it was five grand!  Ernie Boch Jr. said he was taking a page out Donnie Wahlberg’s playbook and participating in the “2020 tip challenge.”  You can check out what Jennifer and Ernie had to say in the video below.


Jennifer posted a pic of the receipt on Facebook with a thank you to Ernie Boch Jr….
