Ellen Gives NH Waitress $10K For Picking Up Furloughed Workers' Tab
A New Hampshire waitress who picked up the lunch tab of two National Guard soldiers affected by the federal government's shutdown has been repaid — more than 300 times over — by television star Ellen DeGeneres. Sarah Hoidahl, a waitress in Concord, just wanted to do a nice thing for the soldiers, so she recently picked up their lunch tab. It cost her $27.75. On Friday, DeGeneres squared the tab and then some, giving Hoidahl $27.75 in cash and a check for $10,000.
