Happy 2020: Server at Michigan restaurant gets $2,020 tip

MICHIGAN (AP) -- The new year already is looking good for a server at a small-town restaurant in Michigan.

Danielle Franzoni says she got a $2,020 tip Sunday on a bill that was only $23.

The 31-year-old single mother says, "Things like this don't happen to people like me." Franzoni works at Thunder Bay River Restaurant in Alpena.

She says she was living in a homeless shelter a year ago. Franzoni plans to use the money to reinstate her driver's license and build savings.
