Brynn Hennessey of Portland, CT, will be traveling to Los Angeles courtesy of Make-A-Wish Connecticut, and organizers hope to enhance her ‘celebrity’ experience by inviting the community to cheer her on as she holds a ‘press conference’ at Noble & Co. in West Hartford.
Born and raised in Connecticut, 13-year-old Brynn has always dreamed of stardom.
Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at just three weeks old, she’s learned to channel her inner diva and refuses to let this life-threatening illness stop her from thinking big. Next week, her journey to celebrity-status begins as she holds her first press conference before flying to LA where her wish to be a Hollywood star is being granted by Make-A-Wish Connecticut
Every celebrity needs adoring fans, and organizers are hoping to help Brynn feel like a real superstar. Create a sign, wear Brynn’s favorite color (pink!), and line the sidewalk outside Noble & Co. at 43 LaSalle Rd. in West Hartford on Wednesday, Aug. 9, at 4 p.m. to cheer your loudest as Brynn’s limo pulls up.
After Brynn heads inside for her press conference, fans can keep the fun going by grabbing a bite or celebratory drink at Noble & Co. Though the press conference is limited to select media and supporters, you just might catch a glimpse of Brynn inside the restaurant as she dishes on all the details of her upcoming wish.
Get your cameras ready, because on Aug. 9 #BrynnGoesBig!
