CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A local rivalry continues to benefit restaurant workers who have been hard hit by the pandemic.

On Thursday night, a customer tipped $2,000 at the Skyline Chili location on 4th and Sycamore in downtown Cincinnati.

While the customer wishes to remain anonymous, they did attribute the tip to the "Crosstown Tipoff Challenge" and said that they were a member of the Bearcat nation.

This tip is now tied for the high-score of $2,000 in the "Tip War" along with a couple of other tips made on Thursday night. So far well over $20,000 has been tipped in the friendly rivalry "war".

There have been other substantial tips over $100 in support of both schools, as well.
