The Phi Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega continues to support her national philanthropy, the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, whose mission is to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses to enrich the human experience with strength, hope, and joy. Last year alone, The Phi Zeta Chapter of Chi Omega at McNeese State University raised over $13,000. This donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® granted the wish of a local child named Grayce. We hope that you will consider making a contribution to our second annual Making Strides for Make-A-Wish to help make more wishes, like Grayce’s, come true.
