A Letter From Our chi o casino Chairs
In 2002, Chi Omega partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® that grants wishes for children with critical medical conditions. To date, Chi Omega Nationals has raised over $20 million and provided more than 1,000,000 volunteer hours to the Foundation. According to Nationals, a wish granted not only provides hope, strength and joy to a child and their family, but it can provide a wish child with the ability and willingness to comply with difficult medical treatments. Hope gained by a wish often improves a child’s physical health. Our Omicron Mu chapter of Chi Omega has raised over $325,000 for the charity since our founding in 2008, allowing us to adopt over 42 wishes!
Every year, Cal Poly’s Chi Omega hosts our annual mock casino night, Chi O Casino, on Cal Poly’s campus. Family, friends, and local community members are encouraged to come play their best hand at Blackjack, Texas Hold ‘Em, Poker, Craps & Roulette, be entered in a raffle for over 30 gift baskets, and have a fun night - all for a wonderful cause! All expenses for the event are paid in full by our organization, so 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.®
This year, Chi O Casino 2019 is looking to continue supporting and celebrating the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Our event will be held on March 2nd, 2019 in Cal Poly’s University Union, and build on our last year’s success of almost $35,000 raised at Chi O Casino 2018! We would like to extend our appreciation and gratitude to to everyone who has already helped us make a difference for this year’s event. If you would like to support, please donate to Make-A-Wish Tri-Counties at bit.ly/chiomega19, or contact a Chi Omega sister to learn more about ticketing for the event.
We hope to see you at this year’s Chi O Casino! Thank you for supporting such a wonderful cause.
