Alumni Highlights

Alumni Association Hosts Carol Of Lights Pre-lighting Festival

The Alumni Association will host the fifth annual Pre-Lighting Festival Dec. 5 prior to the Carol of Lights. The event, which will begin at 5 p.m., will take place at the Frazier Alumni Pavilion, located just southwest of Jones AT&T Stadium. All Texas Tech alumni, students and members of the community are welcome.

The Pre-Lighting Festival will allow attendees of the Carol of Lights to come early, get a good parking space and enjoy free snacks and warm beverages, all while enjoying the sounds of Christmas music. Santa Claus will be present for pictures and to hear Christmas wishes.

The Marine Corps Reserve will be present to accept toys for the Toys for Tots program and they suggest new, unwrapped toys with a $10 minimum value.

The festival will feature a $1,000 scholarship raffle, donated by the Student Alumni Association Board of Directors. The recipient of the scholarship must be attending Texas Tech in the spring 2009 semester to receive the award. Raffle tickets may be purchased for $1 at the Merket Alumni Center located at 17th and University, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students will be able to purchase tickets at the Pre-Lighting Festival as well.

Everyone present will have a chance to win door prizes from local merchants.

For more information on the Carol of Lights Pre-Lighting Festival or raffle tickets, please contact Lauren Chasteen or call (806) 742.3641 ext. 232.
