The Chico State Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is making a difference for a young girl with a life-threatening illness

A touching ceremony was held for four-year-old Davan Jones Saturday at Nettleton Stadium.

She loves princesses and she got to meet two. Thanks to Enchantment Children's Parties, Belle and Rapunzel were on hand to deliver Davan a tiara and a couple hand-made teddy bears.

Chico State's student-athletes then presented Davan with a card indicating she's about to take a trip to Walt Disney World to meet all the princesses her heart desires!

In conjunction with the Make-A-Wish foundation, the SAAC raised $5,000 to send Davan and her family on the trip.

Davan's parents, Leanne Jones and Arica Stiliha, are both touched by seeing Davan's wish come true.

"It's so overwhelming I don't even know if its settled in yet. I mean I feel like a princess myself today, wiping the tears away and it's a dream come true. It's one-hundred percent princesses with that one, this is her dream," said Jones.
