Cleveland Cavaliers’ tall man, Andre Drummond, left a large tip for a waitress in a Florida restaurant on Sunday.
Kassandra Diaz, a waitress at the Delray Beach Che Restaurant, said she didn’t know who the customer was until she saw that he tipped $ 1,000 for a check for $ 164.
“When I got the check book, I typed the tip and information to close the table and I couldn’t believe it,” Diaz wrote next to a picture of the receipt she posted on Instagram. “After a check for $ 160, the tip was $ 1,000. I was shaking and had tears of happiness for what he had left me.”
Drummond, who made over $ 27 million this season, replied, “Thank you for being great!”
The restaurants in Palm Beach County reopened two weeks ago with a 25% capacity, and Diaz said the restaurant had been “pretty slow” in the past week.
“I had no idea how to react, I didn’t want to attract attention, but at the same time I couldn’t describe how much I valued,” Diaz wrote. “It is so amazing to see people show kind actions in these uncertain times. This is a story that I will never forget. Thanks again @andredrummondd !!”
Che’s general manager, Daniela Sujoy, told the Sun Sentinel in South Florida that Diaz could keep the entire tip.
Drummond’s kind act is the second major gratuity in a Florida restaurant that has garnered attention this month after former NFL star Chad Johnson tipped $ 1,000 last week on a $ 37 tab.
