A bartender in Springfield, Oregon was given a lottery ticket as her tip and it ended up paying her quite a bit of money.

ABC News reports that 25-year-old Aurora Kephart[1] was serving one of her regular customers at Conway’s Restaurant and Lounge when he tipped her with a Keno ticket. The tip ended up winning her $17,500 which she plans to save up, donate part of it to charity and even give a percentage of her winnings to the man who gave her the ticket.

Kephart said that it is common for her customer — who chose to remain anonymous — to pay her in Keno tickets. She said that she needs to pay some bills and buy a new couch with her money but the humble bartender donated some of the money to benefit a muscular dystrophy charity.
