Since 1895, Chi Omega has been in an alliance with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and this Friday, October 4th, they will be hosting a fundraiser for 12 year old Gina of Boulder. Gina has been diagnosed with Craniopharyngioma which is a type of brain tumor more commonly found in children. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children who are diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. Chi O Casino will help raise funds to grant Gina’s wish of going to Disneyland.
All week you can find members of Chi Omega on the plaza from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. selling tickets for $5 as well as accepting general donations for Gina. A ticket into the casino will get you playing chips to begin the night with access to a variety of casino style games including blackjack, poker, craps, roulette, and a wheel of fortune. There will also be an opportunity to swap playing chips for a raffle ticket to win an array of great prizes. Additional playing chips, food, and soft drinks will all be available for purchase to help further donate towards Gina. Tickets at the door will cost $7.
The casino night will be held at the Chi Omega chapter house from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The house is located at 1112 Birch Street just to the northwest of campus. All proceeds will go towards Gina, come out and help make Gina’s wish to go to Disneyland a reality!
