Troy University student organizations helped Chi Omega sorority raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation by showing off their musical abilities without singing a note.
Chi Omega held a Lip Sync Battle at the Janice Hawkins Park Amphitheater as a part of their Wish Week activities.
Wish Week is a week’s worth of activities designed to raise money for the sorority’s philanthropy project, Make-A-Wish.
The Lip Sync Battle had the student groups dancing and miming to popular songs in choreographed on-stage routines.
“It was so exciting,” says participant Beth Williamson. “I was actually really nervous because I’ve never performed in front. I was never a dancer or anything so it was really fun. I’m really proud of my backup dancers.”
Events like this help the sorority do their part to grant wishes to children at the local level.
“It’s an amazing organization and we’ve helped Make-A-Wish Alabama the last I don’t know how many years but we always are able to grant one wish for them,” says Chi Omega sister Maggie Rodopolous. “This past semester we were able to grant two wishes which was over 22 thousand dollars. So we did incredible this year and we’re hoping to meet or exceed that amount as well.”
