Tweetable: Good Samaritan, Joey Resto and his family visit @WaltDisneyWorld on behalf of @Kissimmee and @RachaelRayShow #GivingTuesday

KISSIMMEE, FL (December 13, 2016) Experience Kissimmee recently welcomed Good Samaritan Joey Resto and his family for a holiday vacation in the Central Florida destination.

Earlier this year, Resto was featured in a viral video showcasing his act of kindness. On a cold winter night in New York City, Joey came to the aid of a man in need by giving him the shirt off this back to provide warmth. The video was viewed more than 14 million times and picked up on national news channels.

"It warms my heart to see this kind generosity and I am humbled that we were able to continue the act of giving by providing this family a trip of a lifetime." President/CEO of Experience Kissimmee, DT Minich.

Resto's family was awarded roundtrip airfare, a five-night stay at Regal Oaks Resort in Kissimmee, and tickets to Walt Disney World Resort, Gatorland and Medieval Times as part of a Good Samaritan award featured on the popular daytime talk show, The Rachael Ray Show.
