DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 29-year-old server at Fong's Pizza in Des Moines has received a tip of $500 on a bill for a small pizza and a beer.

Cassie Beverly served Seth Collins that meal on Wednesday, not knowing that the Lexington, Ky., man has been handing out such tips in honor of his brother Aaron, who died last year.

Collins said that Aaron's will asked his family to leave the $500 tips for pizza orders. His family has done so since, with the help of $60,000 donated by people who'd heard about or seen the video of the first big tip at a pizzeria in Lexington. The YouTube video has been viewed nearly 2.7 million times.

Beverly told Collins the tip "made my day."
