Audacy Philadelphia’s “Operation Legacy” to Unveil Rehabilitated Home for Local Vet
PHILADELPHIA, PA – May 18, 2023 – Audacy Philadelphia celebrates Operation Legacy, a home rehabilitation project in partnership with Travis Manion Foundation (TMF), with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at a local veteran’s home on May 19 at 11:00 a.m. ET in Hatfield, PA.
As part of the partnership with TMF and local home improvement partners, Audacy Philadelphia and its six stations – B101 (WBEB-FM), KYW Newsradio 103.9 (KYW-FM), SportsRadio 94WIP (WIP-FM), BIG 98.1 (WOGL-FM), Talk Radio 1210 WPHT (WPHT-AM) – teamed up to provide United States Marine Corps veteran Kris Giuranna a home fit for a hero and honor his contributions to the country.
“It is so rewarding to watch this project come to life,” said David Yadgaroff, senior vice president and Market Manager of Audacy Philadelphia. “Audacy Philly, along with our partners Travis Manion Foundation, Window Nation, Impriano Roofing and Main Line Pro Painting, are thrilled to honor Kris and his service to our country by providing him with the needed renovations for his new home.”
Operation Legacy’s Hero’s Home beneficiary for 2023 is United States Marine Corps veteran Kris Giuranna. A Montgomery County native, Giuranna graduated from North Penn High School. Shortly after, he enlisted in the Marine Corps, inspired to serve his country after the 9/11 attacks. He served as a combat infantryman from 2003 to 2012, completing two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. Giuranna was injured while serving and spent time recovering at Tripler Military Medical Center Hawaii. He then completed his service in the Marine Corps in Washington D.C., serving at both the Pentagon and the White House.
Despite the disabilities suffered during his service to our country, Giuranna focuses on helping others. He used his time in D.C. to mentor children who lost a parent or sibling in the military and continues to do so today. He is currently being trained to be a Character Does Matter mentor with the Travis Manion Foundation.
After the Marine Corps, Kris bought a fixer-upper home in Hatfield. The house’s most immediate needs included a new roof, new siding, windows throughout the home and interior and exterior painting needs.
Local home renovation partners stepped in to work with Operation Legacy, including:
- Window Nation: installed brand-new windows throughout the home
- Impriano Roofing: provided a new roof and siding for the home
- Main Line Pro Painting, in partnership with Sherwin-Williams: delivered top-quality interior and exterior painting
