Weedsport, N.Y.—Sydney Walewski loves fashion. She also loves to dance, sing, and shop. When the 15-year-old Weedsport resident connected with Make-A-Wish® for her one true wish, her choice was no surprise. Sydney was headed to Hollywood!
Sydney and her family recently traveled to California for an unforgettable week that included a tour of Hollywood, cruising Sunset Boulevard, shopping on Rodeo Drive, and dinner at Sur, a 5-star restaurant in Beverly Hills. Sydney’s California dream trip concluded with a tour of Universal Studios.
