WILDCAT BELTS SUPPORT CHILDREN’S CHARITIES
But, there’s one category that means a little more than the rest. Lazarchik and Wildcat have created and donated professional-quality belts to terminally ill children.
“Those are the belts that mean the most,” he said. The connection is through David Alan Clothing, a high-end, Pittsburgh-based men’s clothing designer. Several high-profile WWE personalities – including John Cena, The New Day, and Titus O’Neil – are among his clientele.
Each year in Pittsburgh, David Alan Fashion presents a celebrity fashion show, featuring his star athletes wearing his custom clothing. Given Alan’s connection with WWE, partnering with Wildcat Belts was a natural fit.
“There was a natural tie-in. I’m a Pittsburgh guy who does a lot of work for the WWE, and then I heard that the guy who makes the belts for WWE is a Pittsburgh guy too,” said Alan. “So I reached out. It just made sense.”
Alan reached out to Wildcat in 2018, and Lazarchik jumped at the chance to get involved. He crafted and donated a championship belt, which was auctioned off to support charities that help children in need.
The following year, Wildcat again donated a belt for the auction and also crafted title belts to be given directly to ill children. For any young wrestling fan, wearing a title belt fabricated by the company that actually makes the belts for WWE is quite a thrill.
“It’s always good to pay it forward,” said Lazarchik. “When I was a kid, to have an adult do something special for me, it made such an impact. If this is something Wildcat can do to help kids have a brighter day, that’s something we always want to do.”
