    While the Wilson Associates Point of Excellence Awards Luncheons honor excellence in vendor service, they also raise support for The Wilson Foundation (WF). All luncheon proceeds go directly to this non-profit organization, which meets the medical and educational needs of the children and teens in Limpopo Province, South Africa. Founded by Trisha Wilson in 1997, The WF is committed to changing lives, one child at a time. Vendor partnerships are available for companies looking to get more involved in The WF’s mission and future. Contact John Canterbury at or 214.912.6404.
