KENNEWICK, Wash. --The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Sofia Martinez her dream to be a celebrity for a day. Sofia is battling Batten, a rare incurable genetic disorder.

She made a wish and it came true. On Saturday 9-year-old Sofia Martinez was treated to spend a day as a celebrity.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation set up a carriage to pick up Sofia and her friends at her home in Prosser and take them to get dressed up and get their hair and nails done like celebrities.

Off to a photo shoot while fans waited outside for autographs, Sofia Martinez says"Everyone gets to see me and I get to autograph on people's papers. It's amazing how a lot of people would just want to come to see me."

A limo took Sofia and her friends around Columbia Park then taken to P-F Changs for a Hollywood-style dinner with family and friends.
