SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon bartender got the tip of a lifetime this week.
The Register-Guard newspaper reports (http://is.gd/I9P2nA ) that a customer at Conway's Restaurant and Lounge in Springfield often tips bartender Aurora Kephart with unplayed tickets for the state lottery's Keno game.
This time, one of those tickets turned into a $17,500 winner.
Kephart says the look on the customer's face was incredible. The 25-year-old tried to give him back the ticket, but he wouldn't take it.
After collecting her money, she gave the patron some of her winnings.
Kephart says she plans to use her share to buy a new couch and then save the rest.
