in proud partnership with
CHI OMEGA and
Chi Omega established its official partnership with MAW in 2002 and it's been heaven ever since! Make-A-Wish works to grant the wishes of every child diagnosed with a critical illness. From Disney World to meeting their heroes, MAW's mission is
to provide hope to those who need it most. Being
a member of Pi Alpha at the University of Cincinnati means we are able to make a direct impact on the lives of local children through the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana chapter of MAW and we truly get to make wishes come true!
CHI O KARAOKE
WHAT ARE TWO THINGS WE CAN ALL AGREE ON? KARAOKE & HELPING KIDS.
Chi O Karaoke is our major, annual philanthropy event where groups across campus gather on our
stage to sing and dance their hearts out, all for the benefit of Make-A-Wish. As you can imagine, there's plenty of competition for the top prize but here at the University of Cincinnati, we are lucky enough have an incredibly supportive Greek community and student body, making for all the more fun!
This spring, we raised over $3,000 at our 4th Annual Chi O Karaoke. Between this and our other fundraising events throughout the year, the Pi Alpha chapter of Chi Omega is well on our way to granting ANOTHER wish in 2018!
REAL LIFE HOPE.
For the past 4 years, Pi Alpha has singlehandedly sponsored the wish of a critically diagnosed child through our fundraising efforts. Being in partnership with Make-A-Wish of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana means we get to see, first hand, the impact we're making. And, often times, that means getting to throw a party for
our #WishKid as a little icing on the cake!
Our 2015 #WishKid, Annalise, was only 5 years old when she was diagnosed with Leukemia. Annalise wished nothing more than to make a trip to Disney and have high tea with her fellow princesses. So of course we had to grant her wish, send her off at the airport, and welcome her back to a princess party at the Chi Omega cottage... CANCER FREE!
In 2016, we met Rilley, who wished to go on a Disney Atlantic Cruise. As one does, Rilley wanted to witness the majesty of whales and hang out with some princesses. We are so proud to have granted Rilley's wish and help fulfill her dreams.
And just last year, in 2017, we met Chloee. After we said, "Au revoir!" to Chloee at the airport as she took off for her Disney escapade, we had her back at the Chi O Cottage for a Wish Party. The theme? Justin Bieber, naturally, as any proper tween girl requests.
