FRATS AT BAT 2015 #throwback
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® is the Chi Omega Fraternity's National Philanthropy. Since the start of our alliance in 2001, Chi Omegas have made a difference in many children's lives through volunteering time, talents, and dollars. The Make-A-Wish Foundation has honored Chi Omega for the incredible volunteer efforts of our members - Chi Omegas across the country have raised over $17 million and donated nearly one million volunteer hours to Make-A-Wish!
The philanthropy efforts of Chi Omega at Cal go towards Make-A-Wish of the Greater Bay Area. Our chapter has donated more than 2000 hours and over $58,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation through fundraisers like Frats at Bat and our Chi O'Merica BBQ.
Typically, every spring Chi Omega hosts our annual Frats at Bat softball competition. Fraternity men from different chapters on campus come together to compete in a softball tournament, all in the name of Make-A-Wish. All of the entry fees and ticket sales go towards the Make-A-Wish foundation. Each fraternity is coached by a group of women in the chapter and the event is fun, competitive, and best of all, supports a great cause! Frats at Bat in the spring raised over 3,600 dollars for Make-A-Wish!
We are planning on continuing to support Make-A-Wish this year, and philanthropy is huge to us. We'll keep you updated when we know what that looks like!
