On Thursday June 18, 2015 University of Miami Alums DJ Williams, Jon Vilma, Antrel Rolle and Jon Beason are battling it out in a NFL Studded Wii Bowling tournament. The former Hurricanes are going head to head to benefit Home Team Closet, a charity founded by Williams and his mother Sherri to empower the communities through festivities and philanthropy.
The organization is dedicated to honoring students that have been recognized for exceptional behavior, outstanding schoolwork and school attendance.
Home Team Closet encourages professional athletes to donate previously owned or items they fell will aid in the success of the recipients (i.e. athletic apparel, school supplies, business attire) as well as volunteer to mentor or speak with students at events.
Once an association has been selected DJ personally delivers the donated items, sets up a “pop up” store, caters each occasion with tasty goodies and also acts as a personal shopper to a few lucky attendees.
Thursday’s event will be held at Brother Jimmy’s BBQ in Miami from 8-10 PM and is sponsored by Bacardi and SoBe Promos. There will be a $5 raffle for a chance to win fabulous prizes and all proceeds will go to Home Team Closet.
