MEMPHIS, August 2, 2013---Evolve Bank & Trust along with the University of Memphis Women’s Basketball Team and the Neighborhood Christian Centers (NCC) hosted a basketball camp recently for the children of the NCC.

“At Evolve, we’ve been so impressed with the NCC and the U of M Women’s Basketball team and everything they’re doing for our community,” said Scott Stafford, president and CEO, Evolve Bank & Trust. “We just wanted to bring two great organizations together, and we thought this basketball camp would be a great opportunity for everyone involved.”

The basketball camp was held Saturday, July 20th, at the Neighborhood Christian Centers’ Jackson Avenue location. Approximately 40 girls attended the camp from 9-11 that morning giving them a chance to work on their ball handling and shooting skills with some of the U of M Women’s team’s best athletes.

“Our kids had a blast, and enjoyed getting the chance to spend time with some of their role-models.” said Ephie Johnson, president and CEO, Neighborhood Christian Centers. “We work hard every day to make our community a better place and to give hope to our visitors. This camp was a nice outlet to come to the center and just have some fun for a while.”
