DERRICK WILLIAMS AND CHARLIE VILLANUEVA TEAM UP TO HOST 2nd ANNUAL CELEBRITY SOFTBALL GAME FUNDRAISER!
Last year, the Mealz on DWheelz Foudation was able to visit and provide healthy lunches to 4th graders in multiple schools in Detroit. Students were required to write an essay on good sportsmanship and upon turning in their essays they received a Subway lunch and healthy food to take home to their families. The classroom with the highest academic average on their graded papers won tickets to a Detroit Lions game and was able to see the Lions beat the Green Bay Packers last December.
"This program was very fun for me to start, I remember when I was in elementary school NFL players would come visit us and I never forgot that, now that I'm here in Detroit and have the opportunity to give back I want to do that whenever possible," says Williams.
Because of the success of last years' game, Pistons standout, Charlie Villanueva was inclined to get in on the fun and challenged Williams to an NBA vs NFL players game for 2011. In collaboration with the Royal Oak Sandlot League, Best Buy and other great sponsors such as Stonebridge Financial Partners, The Abood Law Firm, Powerade, NIKE and more we are able to hold this game the second year in a row.
Villanueva commented, "What started out as a friendly challenge over Twitter is now turning into something constructively positive for the City of Detroit. It's important to giveback and remain connected with the fans that continue to support us all year long. I'm looking forward and glad Derrick and I are teaming up".
