Wawa Cares For The Kids at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer


2019 proved to be another incredible year for Wawa stores throughout Central Florida. New locations opened and hundreds of associates continued to show their support for patients at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children through their annual fundraising campaign for CMN Hospitals.  Thanks to the steadfast dedication of those associates, general managers, and area managers, they raised $118,420.24,  marking the second year in a row that Wawa has raised over $100,000 for Orlando Health Arnold Palmer through their CMN Hospitals campaign.

To celebrate their efforts, one of our miracle kids, William dropped in to show his support!

We want to give a special shoutout to Wawa #5128 in Casselberry, whose general manager, Brandon Prieto, helped lead his team to not only be the highest fundraising store in his Area, but also the top fundraising store in the state!

This was largely possible because of the personal impact Brandon and his daughter had at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer many years ago.  Thank you to the entire staff at #5128, as well as the other top fundraising stores in each area:

#5172 – Port Orange

#5187 – Orlando (Narcoossee Rd.)

#5134 – Orlando (Goldenrod Rd.)

#5189 – Orlando (Millenia Blvd.)

#5116 – Kissimmee

#5179 – Altamonte Springs (S.R. 436)

#5186 – Altamonte Springs (Altamonte Dr.)

In 2019, Wawa and The Wawa Foundation reached a new milestone, by raising more than $1,061,939 benefiting 13 children’s hospitals, including Orlando Health Arnold Palmer. Through their continued partnership, dedication and support of CMN Hospitals, Wawa and The Wawa foundation staff, associates and generous customers help ensure that the finest medical care is available to children in their communities when they need it most. Thank you for making a difference for the kids!
