Verizon Center Hotel Ready to Host for BB&T Classic Basketball Tournament
Catch a Basketball Doubleheader to Benefit Children December 2, 2012

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Since 1995, college basketball has hosted the annual BB&T Classic Basketball Tournament in Washington, DC. Held at the Verizon Center, near this newly renovated Penn Quarter hotel in Washington, DC, this year's tournament will tip off on December 2, 2012.

First organized by former US ambassador Peter Teeley and a group of Washington-area business and professional leaders, the tournament isn't just for entertainment; it raises funds for the Children's Charities Foundation, a fund-raising organization that financially supports charities near these downtown Washington, DC hotel accommodations.

The lineup for this year's festival, near this Verizon Center hotel, showcases the teams of long-time host universities, University of Maryland and George Washington University, in addition to CAA George Mason and MAAC Manhattan College. Tickets to this doubleheader start at low as $25, and a gala on the night before, a BasketBALL, will host coaches, players, community leaders and other sports figures at a black-tie event. For more information on the BB&T Classic Basketball Tournament, visit

The tournament is a great addition to a Washington, DC family getaway, which can also include visits to the National Mall and its many museums and monuments, Chinatown, the Spy Museum, the White House and Capitol Hill. Eclectic neighborhoods, with boutiques, restaurants, shops and bars, are within walking distance, but if you want to stay closer to home, you'll find five different dining options on site including Starbucks, Liberty Market for grab-and-go items, drinks at miXX and a full-service American bistro at Fifteen Squares Restaurant.
