Allen & Allen Honoring Community Members

July 16, 2014

A local law firm is recognizing several community members as hometown heroes.

One of this year’s honorees from Allen & Allen is Damien Banks.

Banks puts together several events in Charlottesville to keep people entertained. He is best known for his basketball league, The Banks Collage Basketball Association.

He says the basketball league is a great way to keep young people engaged and having fun.

“The reason we do things like this is for entertainment,” said Banks. “We need entertainment in Charlottesville, and I feel like we provide a lot of entertainment. On Sundays and people come out and they support, and they have a good time. They tell me they had a good time. So, that's why we keep doing it, we inspire you to do so.”

Banks’ basketball league plays every Sunday in Tonsler Park throughout the summer.
