A Minnesota teenager whose story touched many lives is back from meeting Warren Buffett. Joey Prusak is the Dairy Queen employee who saw a woman steal $20 from a blind customer last September. Prusak gave the man money from his own pocket.
A Hopkins teenager is headed to Omaha Friday after an invitation from Warren Buffett. The second richest man in America called the Dairy Queen on Main Street in Hopkins after hearing about employee Joey Prusak.
A Hopkins teenager who generously — and without anyone watching — went out of his way to help a stranger, is now reaping the rewards of that kindness. Joey Prusak saw a woman steal $20 from a blind customer at the Dairy Queen where he works. So he gave the guy his own cash.
His name is Joey Prusak — a name people all over the country are reading about this morning. The 19-year-old Hopkins Dairy Queen employee is stealing hearts all over the country after an act of kindness he thought no one even saw.
Joey Prusak of Hopkins is still shocked after witnessing someone steal cash from a blind man in the Dairy Queen store he manages. Prusak said while working the register on Sept. 10 he saw the blind man he was helping drop a $20 dollar bill. “The lady behind him picked it up really quickly,” Prusak said. “I had no time to say, ‘Sir, you dropped that.’”
