AR: Make-A-Wish grants local teen’s wish

(Nov. 13, 2017) -- “I like the camper a lot and was surprised,” Destyn said Saturday. “Make-A-Wish is awesome and the people are very nice. I’m glad that a lot of people showed up. It made me feel thankful.“

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.

“I like the camper a lot and was surprised,” Destyn said Saturday. “Make-A-Wish is awesome and the people are very nice. I’m glad that a lot of people showed up. It made me feel thankful.“
