Dear Friends and Family,
Currently in South Carolina, there are over 200 children who are waiting to have their wishes granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This amazing organization grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions and provides hope, strength and joy to the children and their families.
Chi Omega Fraternity members have a long-standing and personal relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Since the start of the Chi Omega and Make-A-Wish alliance, Chi Omegas nationally have raised over 14 million dollars and have volunteered over 800,000 hours to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. After two successful annual events last year, our chapter raised over $36,000 to help grant the wishes of local children in South Carolina. This year, we hope to raise even more!
To achieve this goal, the Eta Gamma chapter will be hosting our 7th annual Chi O Cook Off. Chi O Cook Off is a grilling competition where various organizations in the Columbia community compete. We will also have raffle prizes, music, free food and more!
However, despite a great turnout at Chi O Cook Off, we will not be able to reach our goal of $20,000.00 through this one event alone. We are asking you to please consider supporting these courageous children by donating online between now and November 16, 2016.
With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of children like Jose...
Jose knows just how much kids his age love the playground. That's why he surprised his classmates, teachers and members of the community by including them all in his wish experience. Jose wished to give a new playground to his elementary school for all the students to enjoy.
As Jose approached the playground of his dreams, cheering classmates surrounded him. This was his day. He cut the big red ribbon and welcomed his friends to their new playground.
Children like Jose are what inspired us to establish a Make-A-Wish team fundraising page.
Please help by contributing any amount you can- $30, $50, $100 or even more. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Thank you for your support!
