Pixi, a local 3-year-old girl with a life threatening illness received a true Disney pixie’s dream come true when she was invited to go to Walt Disney World with her family. The organization Female Athlete Volunteers (FAV) raised $8,000 to support Pixi’s Make-A-Wish dream through donations, fundraising campaigns with the Union Tribune, and by hosting a Queen of the Beach volleyball tournament. The FAV volunteers were able to meet Pixi and her family, sending them off to Walt Disney World with gifts and Pixi’s very own Disney suitcase.

FAV would like to thank the Mike Whitmarsh Foundation, Dr. Suzanne Mills, and Microsoft Corporation for their generous donations.
