The 5th Annual Sonic Meet, benefiting Make-A-Wish! Sunday, May 1st, Morgantown, PA

Everyone's favorite springtime event is back for the 5th year in a row. Come out to Sonic Drive-In in Morgantown, PA on May 1st from noon to 5pm for The 5th Annual Sonic Meet. There will be a huge variety of cars, a ton of great raffles, vendors on site, and it is all helping to raise money for Make-A-Wish.

Last year was an amazing turnout with over 1,000 cars in attendance and over $5,000 donated. We can't wait to do it all again this year, trying to top last year's awesome turnout.

There will be many worthwhile and fun ways to donate at the event so please keep that in mind so we can raise as much money as possible.

Who we are benefiting
This year we have again chosen to benefit the local region of Make-A-Wish. This year they have done something special and matched us up directly with Tia, a 5 year old girl right in our area who has Cystic Fibrosis. Tia wants nothing more than to be able to go to Disney World and we are going to help her make that happen! Its a great feeling to know that as a community we can come together to help someone out in this way.
Tia will be at The Sonic Meet with her family! Please say hello with a smile if you see them walking around as they are our guests for the day. Below is a photo of Tia.

The Sonic Meet Website
Please check out for a quick reference of everything you need to know about the event. Here you can see the event flyer, sponsors, raffle donations, ways to donate, directions, parking info, caravan info, and more. Of course you can also check this thread on TST for info about the event.

How to Donate

*Donate by buying a Sonic Meet t-shirt: For the first time ever we are offering Sonic Meet t-shirts for sale at the event. They came out great and will be a perfect keepsake from the event. The shirts are $15 each and will be available from XS up to XXXL, but make sure to get yours at the beginning of the day to make sure to get the size you want. See below for a picture of the shirt design. All proceeds from Sonic Meet shirt sales will be donated to Make-A-Wish.

*Donate by getting VIP Reserved Parking: We have made VIP Reserved Parking at the front of the main lot available to those who are willing to make a $25 donation prepaid via Paypal. This will ensure your car is close to all the action. We may have a limited amount of spots for people at the gate, but when they fill up they're gone, so we recommend prepaying for this if you are interested. Those who choose this option will also receive $10 worth of raffle tickets as a bonus. Click This Link to reserve your spot now! All proceeds will be donated to Make-A Wish.

*Donate just by buying food at Sonic during the meet: 10% of all sales from Sonic Drive-In during the meet will be donated directly to Make-A-Wish.

*Donate by buying TST Merchandise during the meet: 25% of all TST Merchandise sales at the event will be donated directly to Make-A-Wish.

*Donate by buying raffle tickets for a chance to win great prizes: Enter to win some incredible prizes we've managed to collect... we will announce these prizes soon so you can look forward to them at the meet. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales will be donated directly to Make-A-Wish.

*Donate by being on the lookout for the donation jars around the event to just drop a couple bucks in: it all adds up, especially with the number of people who will be at the event so please consider dropping a dollar or five into the donation jar! All money collected will be donated directly to Make-A-Wish.

Sonic Meet T-Shirts
For the first time ever, we are offering Sonic Meet T-Shirts available for purchase at the meet. These shirts will be available for $15 each so grab one while they last! All proceeds from Sonic Meet t-shirt sales will be donated to Make A Wish.
