Christopher Williams is a passionate connector, history maker, and undeniable leader who uses basketball to transform lives worldwide.

Christopher is the founder of Holiday Hoopsgiving, the number one ranking Thanksgiving tournament for the last four years, according to USA Today and Yahoo Sports. Another renowned event that he started is the Emerald Coast 16, a national Christmas tournament held in Destin, Florida. He is also the curator of the first major college basketball showcase, which will be an addition to Holiday Hoopsgiving.
