This past Saturday, Sept. 28, Chi Omega sorority held its annual Wish In One charity event. This year’s theme was mini-golf.

The event was quite successful, and Chi Omega raised approximately $1,500. All of the proceeds went to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which is the sorority’s national charity of choice.

Wish In One was held at a makeshift nine-hole mini-golf course on Wilson Quadrangle. Tickets were $10, and participants registered in teams of up to five to complete the course together. There were prizes for the lowest individual score, lowest team score, and best dressed team.

In addition, the Chi Omega sisters raffled off several gift cards during tabling and at the event to raise even more donations, including certificates from Bunga Burger Bar, Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, and Scott Miller Salon. Participants received a T-shirt, one raffle ticket, free pizza, and a 10 percent coupon to California Rollin’ Etc. The event also featured music from WRUR.

In 2002, Chi Omega established the Chi Omega/Make-A-Wish alliance. Since its conception, Chi Omega has raised over $6.5 million and given over 400,000 volunteer hours. The Make-A-Wish Foundation recognizes Chi Omega as one of its Cause Champion sponsors.

Senior Claire Wyman, director of philanthropy for Chi Omega, expressed how successful the event was, dubbing it “a hole-in-one fundraising experience.”
