ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Prior to the Super Bowl, QuikTrip and Wawa teamed up for some friendly competition by showing support for their hometown teams while making a positive impact in the community.

QuikTrip, which has a large store presence in the Kansas City area, was confident in a Chiefs victory, whereas Pennsylvania-based Wawa banked on the Birds. Following the game, the retailer whose team lost the big game promised to make a $10,000 donation to the winning retailer’s charity of choice.

With the Kansas City Chiefs winning the game, Wawa will donate $10,000 to Synergy Services, one of the only shelters for runaway and homeless youth in western Missouri.

“Our thanks to Wawa for partnering with us to turn our good-natured rivalry into a win-win for our very deserving local charity partners,” said Aisha Jefferson-Smith, QuikTrip corporate communications manager. “Our partnership with Synergy Services and our national Safe Place locations provide our community’s most vulnerable youth with a safe environment when they need it most.”
