GASTONIA – A tiny princess from Gastonia named Nina was asked what she would wish to do, if she could do anything her heart desired. Her response: “I wish to go to a castle and meet Rapunzel!”

After battling through 16 months of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, Nina got her wish through a partnership of Gastonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and the Make-a-Wish of Central & Western North Carolina.

Nina and her family traveled to Walt Disney World on Dec. 21 for the Christmas holidays. The family went to the ‘princess castle’ to meet her favorite princess, Rapunzel.

Nina and her family visited Gastonia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram on Jan. 23 to meet owners Jack and Robin Salzman, take a tour of the dealership and meet the staff. The Salzmans also own Lake Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

Nina arrived dressed as a princess. She 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 fourth birthday.
