Bartender Gets $17,500 Tip

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (October 6, 2013)--Oregon bartender Aurora Kephart got the tip of a lifetime from a customer at Conway's Restaurant and Lounge in Springfield.

The customer often tips her with un-played tickets for the state lottery's Keno game and this time, one of those tickets turned out to be a $17,500 winner.

Kephart, 25, described the look on the customer's face was incredible.

She said she tried to give the ticket back to him, but said he wouldn't take it.

After collecting her money, she gave the man some of her winnings.

Kephart says she plans to use her share to buy a new couch and then save the rest.
