The Make-A-Wish Foundation is Chi Omega Fraternity's National Philanthropy. Since the start of our alliance, Chi Omegas have made a difference in many children's lives through volunteering time, talents, and dollars. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has honored Chi Omega for the incredible volunteer efforts of our members.
Our chapter has two fundraising events to grant our wish child's wish.
During the Homecoming football game here at Morehead State, we had a silent
auction. The silent auction raised $886 for the Make A Wish foundation.
In November, we hosted Chi Omega Follies. This is the biggest campus wide event
that occurs each year. This year we raised $6,549 during Follies alone and go to send all our profit to Make A Wish!
Last year we also
held new events on campus. Chi Omega's collaborated with
to host a Be The Match event in honor of our alum
Liza, who was diagnosed
with cancer, to help build awareness
bone marrow transplants and allowed students and faculty to register to be a
donor. We also helped raise money for Liza and her family during our Liza Week
where we hosted events around campus. This year we are planning another Liza Week to keep the awareness about leukemia alive and we want to keep helping Liza's family as much as we can!
