The first ever Chi Omega Wish Week was held from Sept. 12-15 to raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation.  Throughout the week points were awarded at the events and the sorority and fraternity that earned the most points received $250 for the philanthropy of their choice.

Scoop-A-Dish for Make-A-Wish was the last event of Wish Week where attendees paid $6 and could have as much ice cream as their heart desired.
