Andre Drummond provided a waitress with a much needed boost to her bank account while out in Palm Beach County, Florida.
The Cleveland Cavaliers center had just dined out at Che Restaurant in Delray Beach when he decided to leave a $1,000 tip for Kasandra Diaz on top of a $164.25 bill. Diaz recalled the story on the restaurant’s Instagram account, along with an image of the bill with Drummond’s signature.
Diaz admitted that she “had no idea who he was, and hadn’t seen him here before.”
“Today, started off as a slow day at work getting there for my doubled shift. The past week, overall, has been pretty slow of course due to COVID. Restaurants and staff have been struggling, as you can imagine. Little did I know that today I would get a tip no server would guess that they would ever receive when they open that check book,” Diaz wrote.
Diaz said she “was shaking and had tears of happiness” after seeing the bill.
“I couldn’t describe the amount of appreciation I had/have. It’s so amazing to see people displaying acts of kindness in these uncertain times. This is a story I will never forget, thank you agains so much @andredrummondd,” she added in appreciation of the Cavs vet.
Drummond’s generosity comes on the heels of former NFL star Chad Johnson dropping $1K to a restaurant upon its first day of re-opening.
