Chi Omega is holding its annual pancake breakfast Sat­urday from 10 a.m to 1 p.m. at its sorority house. Tickets to “ChiHop” are $5, with all pro­ceeds going to the Make-A-Wish Foun­dation.

The pro­ceeds go toward the sorority’s com­bined funds from other events to send $6,000 to Make-A-Wish. That amount pays for the wish of one child with a life-threat­ening illness.

“We raised $1,600 last year and we are trying to match that this year,” Chi Omega phil­an­thropy chair Claire Gwilt said.

After holding two fundraisers in the fall — Volley for a Wish and Chi O Comedy Night — Gwilt said Chi O has raised around $2,700 so far this year.

ChiHop will feature four dif­ferent kinds of pan­cakes: plain, chocolate chip, gluten free, and the Chi O special, straw­berry and banana.

The $1,600 goal matches the record for the most money raised by the event, after the sorority increased the event’s ticket price from $3 to $5.

“The $2 increase helped raise $600 more,” Gwilt said.

Chi Omega has raised money for the Make-A-Wish Foun­dation since 2001 when the foun­dation became the sorority’s national phil­an­thropy partner.

“It’s been a really good expe­rience working with Make-A-Wish,” Gwilt said. “I’ve been raising money for Make-A-Wish since ele­mentary school, and getting the chance to come here and raise money for Make-A-Wish has been a real blessing.”
