BB&T Classic History

The BB&T Classic Basketball Tournament is a Washington, DC-based basketball tournament that has been held annually since 1995, when it was known as the Franklin National Bank Classic. It is staged at the Verizon Center, on or around the first weekend in December. Organized in 1994 by Peter Teeley former US Ambassador, and a group of Washington-area business and professional leaders, the tournament raises funds for the Children’s Charities Foundation, a fund-raising organization that financially supports Washington-area charities
