Dear Friends and Family,
You may already know that Chi Omega Fraternity members have a long-standing and personal relationship with 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.
I am very excited to be representing Chi Omega as our Philanthropy Chair this year, which means I get to arrange this awesome event. As many of you know, I am a childhood cancer survivor, and was also granted a wish years ago by the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This January marked 20 years of being diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, and as of September, I will have been cancer free for 20 years! What a year to celebrate. With a cause so near and dear to me, I can't wait to reach our goal and help so many children who are in the same position I was so many years ago!
This year, Clemson's Chi Omega will be hosting the 3rd Annual Wings for Wishes event on March 29, 2017! Approximately 500 students will gather to compete in a wing eating contest. Despite our continuously great turnouts, we will not be about to reach our goal of raising $33,000 this year through this event alone. We are asking you to please consider supporting these courageous children by making a tax-deductible contribution to Make-A-Wish between now and April 7, 2017. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
You can donate online or send checks payable to Make-A-Wish and send them to my mailing address:
120 Stone Crest Lane
Central, South Carolina 29630
Thank you all for your support! Feel free to reach out to me at 608-719-8778 if you have any questions at all.
