In 2002, Chi Omega announced its alliance with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants the wishes of children with life threatening illnesses and provides hope and happiness to families across the country. Since the start of the alliance, Chi Omega has raised over $19 million dollars and given nearly a million volunteer hours. The Make-A-Wish Foundation recognizes Chi Omega as one of their Cause Champion sponsors for the incredible volunteer efforts of our members.
The Alpha Kappa Chapter contributes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation through many events, the largest of which is our Semi-Annual Pancake Dinner. At this popular event, we welcome guests to our own house for an all-you-can-eat pancake buffet. To this date, the Alpha Kappa Chapter has raised over $100,000 to benefit Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina.
Other events we participate in include: Wishing Well, Parent's Weekend Silent Auction, 5K Walk for Wishes, and Make-A-Wish Ball.
