William Wilson, CEO of William Wilson Clothing, took a stand against domestic violence by starting The William Wilson Foundation, a charitable organization that assists victims and/or their children of domestic violence.

Wilson recently held his annual Clothier Classic event, a celebrity golf tournament held at the TPC Piper Glen to raise money for non-profit organizations to help fight against domestic violence; some of the celebrities who attended this event included, James Anderson, Leonard Wheeler, Charles Arbuckle, Brevin Knight and Jake Robbins.

A meet and greet kickoff party was held the day before the tournament that allowed individuals the opportunity to network while having a great time mingling within an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere.

Anderson, a linebacker in the NFL, is a good friend of Williams and attended both days of the event

“I like to support people who are doing great things and this is a great cause,” he said.

Leonard Wheeler, a former NFL player, also a good friend of Williams, faithfully attends the event every year.

“I have a lot of women in my life and I am very protective of women and so I believe in the cause whole-heartedly,” he said.

“Overall, I think the event went really well and that everyone had a good time. All the players really enjoyed themselves and shot some really good scores,” said Wilson.

Everyone had a great time networking and playing golf in honor of supporting the cause of domestic violence and it is this type of support that helps to bring awareness to this growing epidemic.

“The event was wonderful and I look forward to doing it again next year,”said Wilson.
