2013 Community Events
Make-a-Wish


 

A tiny princess named Nina in Gastonia, NC was asked what she would wish to do, if she could do anything her heart desired. Her response was, "I wish to go to a castle and meet Rapunzel!" After battling through 16 months of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, that little princess was granted her wish by the partnership of Gastonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and Make-a-Wish of Central & Western North Carolina. On December 21, 2013, she and her family traveled to Walt Disney World for the Christmas holidays. Nina and her family went straightaway to the 'princess castle' to meet her very favorite princess--Rapunzel! With big blue eyes and an adorable pink princess dress, Nina easily won everyone's heart, while she and her family made happy new memories enjoying the Magic Kingdom. 

On January 23, 2014, Nina and her family visited Gastonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram to meet owners Jack and Robin Salzman, take a tour of the dealership and meet the staff. Nina came dressed in her princess finery and followed a trail of jewels to various spots in the dealership, where she found treasures including a Rapunzel doll, princess tea set and strawberry cupcakes to celebrate her upcoming 4th birthday. Everyone at the dealership was thrilled to meet the courageous Princess Nina and her loving family!
