FRANKLIN NATIONAL BANK ANNOUNCES HOLIDAY HOOPS TOURNEY
Published February 9, 1995
The first annual Franklin National Bank Classic will feature basketball teams from the Universities of Maryland, Massachusetts, George Washington, and Florida competing at USAir Arena on December 2-3, 1995. Proceeds from the Bank Classic will benefit the Children's Charities Foundation (Children's Charities). Organizers of the "high-caliber tournament" hope to give at least $500,000 to the Foundation. Tournament organizers also said USAir Arena has signed a 3-year deal for the tournament, with George Washington and Maryland "having rights of refusal" in '96 and '97 (Karen Goldberg, WASHINGTON TIMES, 2/9).
