RALEIGH, N.C. – Dozens of employees at one restaurant were treated to a magical vacation they won't soon forget.

Gypsy Gilliam, the owner of the State Farmers Market Restaurant in Raleigh, North Carolina, made sure her approximately 50 guests didn't have a worry as the costs of rooms, transportation, food and everything was covered, according to WRAL.

Gilliam told the NBC affiliate that without her staff, she wouldn't have a restaurant, so she wanted to show her appreciation for them.

The trip happened last week and for employees like Jasmine Kamel, it was a dream come true.

"It was so amazing. I cried a couple of times," said Kamel in an interview with WRAL. "I could cry right now. I don't think she'll ever understand how grateful we are for what she did for us."
