It's been a rough year for everyone, especially for those in the foodservice industry. One Grand Junction business is about to award a colossal tip to a server at a downtown GJ restaurant. They're asking for your help to determine the recipient.

The owners, management, and staff at Board Fox Games at 623 Main Street in Grand Junction want to "brighten one server's day this Holiday Season." One of the crew at Board Fox Games previously worked as a waitress and knows all too well the challenges associated with the job.

Via Facebook, Trudi, a member of the staff at Board Fox Games, said, "As many of you know I was a waitress many moons ago. My heart goes out to all the servers this year, it's been tough." With that in mind, the store is stepping up to the plate to offer a very special gratuity to a Grand Junction server.

According to their Facebook post, Board Fox Games is collecting tips in the store. The store will then match those tip contributions up to $500. As of Tuesday, December 1, they have already met that $500 goal.

The plot thickens. Next, the store is asking you to vote for a Downtown Grand Junction restaurant. During the week of December 7, Trudi will take her three boys out to dinner at the restaurant receiving the most votes. Trudi will be paying for her family's meal out of her own pocket. Then... she will donate 100% of the tips collected, currently $520.29, plus the $500 match, as a tip for the server.

Think about that for a minute. A server at a Downtown Grand Junction restaurant will soon be receiving a $1,020.29 tip. Who will it be? That's entirely up to you. It's going to be a server working at the restaurant of your choosing. In other words, vote now! You can vote from the following:
