SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz., (MyFoxBoston.com)-- Arizona high school seniors pulled an unforgettable prank— one that cost $510.

After last year's seniors at Combs High School in San Tan Valley were banned from graduation for pulling a senior prank, the Class of 2014 decided to turn it around and pulled off an unforgettable one.

"Everybody is really proud of us, and it feels great," senior Sarah Kendall said.

A group of seniors organized a plan to “prank it forward.” In a week and a half, the students raised money for a local Olive Garden server who needed help paying for his medical bills. They met for lunch at the restaurant and left the server a $510 cash tip.

"And as he opened it, all the money was right there. And he was like - here you go, and we were like, no Combs High School is presenting this 'prank it forward' to you. Because you are the one who deserves it," senior Haily Wilt said.

People at the restaurant applauded the students’ random act of kindness. The students and teachers hope “prank it forward” becomes a tradition.

"More people get a benefit out of this than we would out of pranking our school," senior Karla Alfaro said.
