San Antonio, TX- The San Antonio Alumni Association of Omega Delta Phi hosted the 5th edition of their signature event, Fright Knight for Kids in collaboration with the San Antonio Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club over the weekend. The association raised funds to cover the costs of the event and called the undergraduate membership of the San Antonio to action to help put on the event.
The Fright Knight for Kids is a community event open to all of San Antonio which is set up like a carnival, with booths, contests, and even
an elaborate haunted house that visitors are able to brave. This is the fifth year that the San Antonio Alumni Association has hosted the event and has become one of the SAA’s premiere and most successful events. The Four Links golf tournament in the Spring is held to raise funds for the Halloween event which has had a widespread reach in the Alamo City.
The Beta Theta chapter at Texas A&M San Antonio, the Beta Omicron chapter at the University of the Incarnate Word, the Alpha Pi chapter at St. Marys University, the Beta Mu chapter at Our Lady of the Lake University, and Alpha Delta at the University of Texas-San Antonio were all on hand and provided all hands on deck in order to ensure the success of the event. Alumni from Delta Chapter at Texas A&M University, Theta Chapter at West
Texas A&M University, Alpha Chapter at Texas Tech University and Rho Chapter at Texas State University were also represented. National Founder Joe Cereceres made it out to the family friendly event in the company of his wife and children.
All in all, 340 people were served food, while 155 of them entered the haunted house and an estimated 200 children were in attendance at the trick or treat Halloween carnival. There was a costume contest held in three different age levels: one in the lower age group, one in the middle age group, and one in the upper age group. Activities and booths at the carnival consisted of a cake walk, a coloring contest, trick or treat bag decorating, and face painting. The Bat Alliance of San Antonio made an appearance at the event, including the Dark Knight himself which garnered alot of attention from the children in attendance.
Brother Aurelious Bankston from Alpha Pi chapter at St Mary’s University provided his disc jockey skills and kept the tunes coming during the event.
All things considered, the San Antonio Alumni Association continued their commitment to the children of the Alamo City through another successful edition of their signature event, the 5th Annual Fright Knight for Kids which has become a tradition for the association and a much anticipated event for the children of San Antonio.
