ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Joey Prusak's act of kindness during his shift at a suburban Minnesota Dairy Queen has gathered attention nationwide. Not far from Prusak's hometown, the Minnesota Wild also took note. On Saturday, Prusak will attend the Wild's preseason game against Winnipeg as a special guest of team owner Craig Leopold. Prusak will be in a suite, along with 20 friends and family. The reason? The team wanted to reward Prusak for his kindness after what took place earlier this month. Prusak, a 19-year-old from Hopkins, Minn., was working at a Dairy Queen when a blind customer dropped a 20 bill on the ground without noticing. Before Prusak could inform the man, another customer picked up the bill and put it in her purse. Prusak, the store's manager, confronted the woman, who claimed the money was hers. He told the woman she could either return the money that she stole or leave the store. She chose the latter when Prusak stood tall and refused to serve her because of her dishonesty. Another customer noticed what happened and wrote a letter to Dairy Queen. The note, which praised Prusak's actions, eventually made its way to the Hopkins branch -- and later onto the Internet, where it went viral. Prusak reportedly received a call from billionaire Warren Buffett, and that particular Dairy Queen store has seen an increase of customers since Prusak's actions became known. Saturday, those actions will be rewarded when Prusak and friends enjoy watching Zach Parise, Ryan Suter and the rest of the Minnesota Wild take the ice at Xcel Energy Center. Not a bad perk of simply doing his job. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter
