Actor Tom Selleck Offers Generous $2,020 Tip at New York Restaurant

By Movieguide® Staff

BLUE BLOODS and MAGNUM P.I. star Tom Selleck joined in the #2020TipChallenge and blessed a New York Restaurant server with a $2,020 tip to close out the year.

Co-star and on-screen son on the hit series BLUE BLOODS, Donnie Wahlberg, shared Selleck’s act of generosity via Twitter.

“I found out that my TV Dad [Tom Selleck] has generously accepted the #2020TipChallenge at Elios Upper East Side! Love ya dad,” Wahlberg wrote. “I didn’t start it but I’m proud to be part of it. To those who gave even the smallest extra amount this year — THANK YOU.”

Along with the caption, Wahlberg shared photos of Selleck’s tip and a note he left for his server.

“For Elios, I am honoring my friend Donnie Wahlberg’s ‘tip challenge’ with my sincere hope for a better 2020. Thank you all,” Selleck wrote.

Wahlberg, brother to Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg, initially partook in the “2020 tip challenge” on Jan. 1 of this year. Jenny Wahlberg, his wife, posted a photo to Twitter with the $2,020 tip and a caption that read “starting 2020 off like the amazing man he is.”

Many other celebrities joined the challenge throughout the year, including Harry Styles, and displayed a heart of generosity and kindness amidst an unstable year for many worldwide.

According to The Alpena News, the “challenge” to leave a $2,020 started after a waitress named Danielle Franzoni received an anonymous $2,020 tip with a note that said, “Happy New Year,” and “2020 Tip Challenge.”
