The Tip of a Lifetime

A few weeks ago, my roommates and I visited an Outback Steakhouse near Kent State and had perhaps the greatest dining experience ever. We’ve since become regulars because of one incredible waitress named Trudi. We tipped as much as we could as college students, but we believe she deserves much more and could use a gracious gift especially during this time. She is older in age, and we’ve come to learn that she works six days a week at the restaurant.

The second time we had Trudi, she immediately recognized us from before and treated us as though she’d known us forever. She even brought us cookies that she made the night before for dessert along with special drinks and smoothies! Needless to say, every time we go to Outback we ask for Trudi! We want to do anything we can to help her out with bills or any other expenses she may be struggling with. We would appreciate anything you’re willing to contribute!
