  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Campus sorority holds event for charity

“Get Lei’d for a cause” as Chi Omega Sorority would put it. Tomorrow the Chi Omega Sorority will give students a chance to see a Luau.

Chi Omega is hosting a Mr. Luau contest, its second competition held for their “wish child” at the Make-A-Wish foundation.

The chapter focuses on diversity, campus involvement, leadership, and on the philanthropy events they participate in, such as this luau competition.

“Our main goal is to raise money for Make-A-Wish and ultimately to grant a wish for our wish child,” said Shea Strittmather, the assistant community service and philanthropy chair of Chi Omega.

According to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, “a wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions.”

Chi Omega’s wish child wants to go to Hawaii. So the idea to have a luau competition was a no-brainer among the sorority.

For this reason, Chi Omega has dedicated this philanthropy event and many others to donating and granting wishes.

The Mr. Luau competition will be hosted at the University in Olscamp room 115 from 7-11 p.m. and is open to any male who wishes to enter with a $20 entry fee.

Strittmather is in charge of organizing the competition and overseeing the event.

Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The winner will be announced at Moonball, which is an annual glow in the dark volleyball competition, on February 24th.

The Mr. Luau competition is open to the public but Chi Omega is asking for a small donation to attend.

“Last year’s competition to find Prince Charming was a hit and we plan for this one to have a good turn out,” said Danielle Kutan, Chi Omega community service chair.

At the end, the audience will put their donation in a jar for their favorite luau contestant.

A spirit award will be given to the contestant with the most money in their jar.

Willis Hill, a junior at the University and member of Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity plans to sign up for the Mr. Luau competition.

“I think Chi Omega is doing a good thing granting wishes for sick children. You never know how much it could mean to a child. I plan on attending, if not participating in the event,” he said.

Any male wishing to still participate in this race should email Shea Strittmather at [email protected].
