A little bit about our alliance:
Since 1895, Chi Omega Fraternity has been enriching women’s lives through our unique membership experience. As a prominent national women's fraternity, Chi Omega provides countless opportunities for fun and friendship during college and beyond.
Since Chi Omega's alliance with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® began in 2001, Chi Omega has raised over $8 million and donated over 500,000 hours to the Foundation. Chi Omega women are truly making a difference in their communities as they help make wishes come true and share the power of a wish®.
Now it's your turn to share in the ability to bring happiness and wishes to children around the world!
Granting a Wish 2013!
In 2013 we were able to grant 1 WISH-raising $7,000!
This year we granted a wish to Ryan, who wished for a rockstar recording studio with a guitar, drum set and microphone! Ryan is a 7 year old with hypogammoglobulonemia, a primary immune deficiency. It continues to be an amazing experience to give this opportunity and be a small part of his and his family's lives. We were also able to meet this year with two volunteers, a prior wish recipient family, who shared a Sunday afternoon to talk about their experience with the foundation, how we can continue to help this organization, and accepted our $6,645 check on behalf of Make-A-Wish Foundation®!
Our Wish for 2014!
We would love to be able to grant more wishes to children! We need your support! We would love a sea of blue of walkers/runners/supporters for the event! Please share this event with your family, friends, co-workers, and anyone who can support this cause.
If we meet our $12,000 goal we will be able to host a Wish Party for two children who are requesting wishes to be granted! WE ARE ALMOST HALF WAY THERE!!
Watch our progress towards the goal on the thermometer.
