Chi Omega is hosting a chili cook off fundraiser

Chi Omega is wel­coming the autumn season with their Chili Cook Off scheduled for Sept. 27 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

Tickets cost $5 and include admission and the chance to judge chili vari­eties. Pro­ceeds go toward Chi Omega’s con­tinued alliance with the Make-A-Wish Foun­dation. It is the first of the two main phil­an­thropic events they plan each semester. 

“It is our national phil­an­thropy of choice and that’s been a long­standing affil­i­ation,” said Crystal Schupbach, Chi Omega phil­an­thropy chair.

To par­tic­ipate in the event, con­tes­tants can email Schupbach to either sign up for a chili entry or be a taste-tester. Sign-ups will also be in the Union the week of Sept. 27.

Schupbach noted that Chi Omega is paying special attention to which fundraisers have been the biggest hits among stu­dents. Stu­dents may see some returning and new events on the cal­endar, all with the same attention to active service and phil­an­thropy. The autumn fes­tiv­ities at the Chili Cook-off are an oppor­tunity to share that mindset – com­plete with chili.
