A Conversation with Coach Roy Williams - A Resounding Success

By Staff Report, posted 2 weeks ago

Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity (FAHFH), in partnership with Fayetteville State University’s Athletic Department, hosted a call-to-action event, Homecourt: A Conversation with Coach Roy Williams, at the Felton J. Capel Arena on FSU's campus. The event brought together community members, supporters, and sports enthusiasts to explore Habitat's mission.

The legendary Coach Roy Williams came down to speak about the intersection of sports and community housing. The goal of this fundraiser was to support Habitat's mission and educate the public on all the work that FAHFH does, including Homeownership, Critical Repairs, the work of the ReStore on Bragg Boulevard, and Trade Days. "The work of Habitat is creating partnerships to promote affordable housing, helping keep our seniors in the homes they’ve worked so hard to pay for, and inspiring the next generation," said Brandon Price, CEO of Fayetteville Area Habitat for Humanity in a press release.

The event commenced with a VIP meet-and-greet session, followed by lunch and a stimulating conversation between Coach Roy Williams and Brandon Price. Attendees had the unique opportunity to hear Coach Williams share his insights on the significance of secure and reliable housing and how it has influenced his coaching career, along with a "Q and A session" and a silent auction of items Coach had generously signed. 

In addition to the engaging discussion, the Felton J. Capel Arena was adorned with storyboards highlighting the experiences of Habitat beneficiaries. Exhibits showcased tools and items from the ReStore, as well as displays from the Trade Days initiative, providing attendees with a comprehensive understanding of FAHFH's impact on the community.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to the event sponsors whose generosity made Homecourt possible: Fayetteville State University Athletic Department, Leidos, Cape Fear Valley Health, Up & Coming Weekly, Cumulus Media, Longleaf Pine Realtors, Land Stout, Allegra, and Sweet Valley Ranch. Special thanks to Tony Wooten for his exceptional photography, and to The Belmont Village and Balloon Pops for their services, which contributed to the event's success.

Homecourt not only raised awareness about the crucial issue of affordable housing but also successfully generated funds to support FAHFH's projects, such as the Trade Days of Summer that is coming up this July. This construction camp will provide a hands-on learning experience for high school students who are interested in making a career in the trades.  We are grateful to all attendees, sponsors, and volunteers for their unwavering support in building homes, communities, and hope.
