Belmont’s Kappa Alpha Theta and Alpha Tau Omega will host “Playing for Christmas,” a 3-on-3 basketball tournament on Dec. 3. All proceeds will go towards the Edgehill Center to provide 300 local children with gifts this holiday season.
Money will be raised through team sign-ups as well as raffles with prizes such as CMA Country Christmas tickets, a Hasselbeck jersey and many others.
The double elimination tournament will be held in the Sports Science Center with games lasting 20 minutes each. The championship game will occur at half-time of the Belmont women’s basketball game.
Event coordinators Joni Jamerson and Katie Wilkerson of Kappa Alpha Theta said they are excited about hosting the event on campus with ATO. Other Belmont Greeks have been welcoming to Theta, they said, and the fraternity wants to continue developing strong relationships with other chapters.
