TipsForJesus: Notre Dame releases $10,000 tip to workers

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Four workers at a University of Notre Dame campus bar, including one from Fort Wayne, will soon be sharing a $10,000 tip.

The big tip has been left in limbo since mid-October, when a group of three men left a pair of $5,000 tips on a credit card at the Legends of Notre Dame on the day of the Notre Dame-Southern California football game.

Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown said the tip is being released to the workers after it was reviewed for possible fraud.

Legends server Ashley Sullivan told the South Bend Tribune ( she’s unhappy with the delay but glad to be getting the money before Christmas.

Ashley Rust of Fort Wayne is among those sharing the tip money, the Tribune said.

The men signed the receipts with “TipsForJesus,” which is the name of an Instagram account where big tips have been chronicled around the country.
