Make-A-Wish Event

It was a royal event Saturday, a six-year-old girl granted the wish of a lifetime by her very own prince.

The prince from Beauty and the Beast, played by a student-actor from UNCA, presented May Lee with a royal proclamation.

It stated that may and her family of eight will get to make a trip to Disney World, courtesy of Make a Wish Central and Western North Carolina.

It was a moment her parents say they'll never forget.

Scott Helms, father, "one of her favorite Disney movies is Beauty and the Beast and she wanted to dance with the prince. He had to have a pony tail just like the prince on Beauty and the Beast, she was just extremely excited and happy that she got the opportunity to do that."

A Walk for Wishes followed the presentation, with hundreds of people strolling through Asheville in support of Make a Wish.

Teams raised more than $45,000 to help makes dreams come true for local children with life-threatening diseases.
