Tuckerman High School student Destyn Drake thought he was going to Sonic to order dinner when he was greeted by Sonic employees carrying balloons and a banner that said, “Your Wish Has Been Granted.” Drake, 13, was then surrounded by family and friends when two representatives from the Make-A-Wish Foundation announced that he was being granted his wish for a camper trailer.
