Ky. man fills brother's wish with big tip in Vt.

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - When Aaron Collins died, he gave his brother, Seth, a mission: Eat, be merry and leave a giant tip.

On Wednesday night, Seth Collins, of Lexington, Ky., did just that, leaving a $500 tip for Friendly's waitress Julie Bombria in Springfield, Vt. It's part of a nationwide tour that Seth Collins is carrying out in the name of his brother, who died in July 2012 at the age of 30.

In a story provided by the Eagle Times of Claremont, Bombria said she was probably going to faint after getting the generous tip.

In his will, Aaron Collins asked his family to give his money to people in need. After Seth put a video of his first tipping spree on Facebook, he started getting donations from around the world.
