WAWA, Pa. -- Wawa Inc. is the exclusive retailer offering a book honoring the life of Philadelphia Phillies' announcer Harry Kalas.
Beginning this week, in time for Father's Day, the c-store operator is selling "Remembering Harry Kalas: Wonderful Stories from Friends Celebrating a Great Life," by Rich Wolfe. Priced at $9.99, 60 percent off the publisher's suggested retail price, the hardcover commemorative book is the first of its kind sold at Wawa stores. They are available in 400 stores throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware at the checkout counter.
"We are honored to exclusively sell this tribute to Harry Kalas, a man who we not only all admired and adored, but who was a loyal customer and friend to Wawa for many years," said Howard Stoeckel, Wawa's president and CEO. "His memory and legacy will always live on inside of our stores, as well as in the hearts of all who knew and listened to him, and we feel privileged to be able to help share his memory with the greater Philadelphia community."
Wawa will donate $10,000 to a charity selected by the Kalas family.
