Wilson’s World: At Sleepy Poet Picking Up an Ugly Holiday Sweater for the Kimble Foundation Ugly Sweater Contest
The Ugly Sweater Contest to benefit the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage will be on Thursday, November 29th from 7:30pm to 9pm at the Charlotte Christmas Village.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Wilson loves hanging out at the Sleepy Poet Antigue Mall on South Blvd in Charlotte and cruising down the aisle of the over 60,000 square feet of antiques, vintage and home decor items. Today he stopped back in to choose a brand new ugly holiday sweater for the upcoming Ugly Sweater Contest to support the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage.
Wilson was joined at Sleepy Poet by Ron Kimble the founder of the Jamie Kimble Foundation and our old friend Riley Fields with the Carolina Panthers…all three in their finest holiday sweater attire. Ron and Riley talked about the importance of the foundation and supporting its mission.
Founded by Ron Kimble in honor of his daughter Jamie, who was shot and killed by her abusive ex-boyfriend whom the left 3 months earlier, the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage was created to bring education, awareness, prevention and training young people the warning signs of abuse.
