The week of homecoming for many is a week of remembrance. In this case, Roman Banks looked to do exactly that for many Southern alumni. On Friday night, Banks hosted a special edition of his overtime event to celebrate former athletes and supporters. Attendees were treated to a fun-filled night of recollection and fellowship amongst one another.
Banks, whose events typically are for fundraising, decided to give back to those who help when they can. The room was illuminated by RnB music and good cheer to go around. All in attendance were also treated to an open bar and food. “We wanted to give back to our former athletes and also help them to ingratiate the next generation of Southern athletes.”
The goal of the event was to show alumni a great time during the homecoming festivities. Many supporters also came out in full force to celebrate another year of Southern sports. The room was filled with enthusiasm and laughter. Banks addressed the crowd by thanking them for their endless support. He asked guests to enjoy this event to the fullest because it’s all for them.
The event was about celebrating the past and but also toasting to the future. As the event was hosted in the A.W Mumford Fieldhouse, guests partied in a room with a grand view of the stadium. As with most events at Southern University, it felt like a family affair. All in all, it was a special event for a special group of people.
