OROVILLE, Calif. - A group of young girls that were impacted by the Camp Fire received royal treatment at an Oroville event on Saturday.

About 50 girls came out for face painting, a meet and greet with Miss Butte County, photos and lots of extras.

Each princess received gift cards and was invited to participate in the crowning of the next royal court at the Butte County Fair in August.

All of the girls were made honorary "Miss Butte County's" for the day.

Organizer Kari Wheeler said, "It's been probably one of the most rewarding events that I feel that the community has done."

She said it was great to see the kids' and parents' faces at the event. 

Wheeler said what they were trying to do was to add some sunshine to their lives, to make the girls feel special, and let them know that their community loves them.

The event was sponsored by Quota International of Gridley, the Miss Butte County Scholarship Program, the Gridley Rotary Club, the Butte County Cattlewomen, and Century 21.
