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 helps raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation through our annual fundraisers. This past spring, we brought DipSync, a lip-syncing and dancing competition, to the Franklin and Marshall campus. Partnering with Kappa Sigma, we raised over $2700 for Make-A-Wish, the most any sorority has raised from a community service event! Various campus groups entertained a crowd of students and a panel of four judges, who deliberated the winner. We can't wait for the many DipSync events to come and hope you will come out to support us in the future!
Additionally, our chapter has been involved in Make-A-Wish send off parties for children whose wishes to go to Disney World had been granted. Each Disney-themed party we have hosted has been an incredible success for both the families and the sisterhood and we look forward to continuing this tradition.
Finally, each Halloween, the sisterhood, along with Kappa Sigma, hosts an annual haunted house for the community. Children are able to enter a spooky world filled with crazy cooks, brooding witches, and the occasional ghost. It's not only a fun-filled night for the children, but also for the sisterhood.
