The Bill and Sharon Allen Family Foundation

Bill Allen

Bill loves baseball. Through a long career in the recycling and material handling equipment businesses, Bill was able to foster his longtime love of America's favorite sport. If he's not wearing a Charlotte Knights logo, it's only because he's wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates or a Texas Rangers logo. He was a very competitive runner in the past but now enjoys cycling. Sometimes for fun but most often for charity cycling events.

Bill's years of business success have given him an opportunity to help others succeed. He's an active board member on several local boards including the Carolina Thread Trail. In this capacity he is able to stay in tune with many of the challenges our community faces and is always working to find ways for improvement.

Sharon Allen

Sharon shares the family love of baseball and can always be found right behind home plate with Bill cheering for their favorite teams. Sharon is probably best described as team mom and #1 fan, all wrapped up together. Always a smile and a hug, or a word of encouragement, Sharon is always lifting spirits wherever she goes.
