Tonight marked the 49th Annual KΩT Christmas Tree Lighting at Baylor's Christmas on Fifth in the Burleson Quadrangle. This year at the lighting we featured the Kappa Pickers of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, Doctor Alton Hassell, sponsor of Kappa Omega Tau and lecturer in Baylor's Chemistry Department, and then wrapped up the festivites in the Burleson Quadrangle with Nick Florence of Baylor Football lighting the Christmas tree.
Following the lighting of the Christmas tree, Kappa Omega Tau hosted our annual concert featuring JohnnySwim and The Lone Bellow. The concert was an absolute blast and a success! Profits from the evening went to benefit two local Waco charities, YoungLife and K-Life, youth outreach programs.
The Baylor Lariat wrote an article on the Christmas Tree Lighting and concert, explaining the event in more detail. We encourage those reading this to also read the article as they had the opportunity to get a few quotes from some of the Christmas Tree Chairman and really highlight what the event was all about.
