Good morning everyone! This weekend was a jam-packed Chi Omega weekend for me (I am not complaining!). This weekend we had our Family Day brunch and our spring philanthropy event. Chi Omega’s philanthropy is Make-A-Wish Foundation! For my chapter’s event, we did “Chi-O Karaoke”. At the event, we raised almost $20,000! YES, you read that correctly!
At the Family Day brunch, sisters were recognized for many things. In Chi Omega, we have six purposes that are very special to us. They are:
Within those areas, two sisters were chosen to receive awards within each purpose! I was lucky enough to be chosen as the “High Standards Emerging Leader”! I was so honored to be chosen out of my more then 200 women for this award.
Two years ago, Kent State’s Chi Omega chapter was able to raise enough money for a special little girl named Mackenzie, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. On Saturday, a healthy Mackenzie sang “Let It Go” from Disney’s movie Frozen for all of the Greek Community! It was so inspiring to watch her with such confidence, and know that Chi Omega helped make her a happier during a rough time in her life. Let’s just say when she sang… there was not a dry eye in the house! I was crying like a baby, haha.
The brunch was lovely, and we killed our philanthropy event! I know the news does not always portray Greek Life in the best light, but I promise you there are a lot of positive aspects to it. I am thankful to Chi Omega for some of the lovely ladies that I have met through it!
Here are some pretty photos with some of my beautiful sisters:
