RAISING MONEY FOR & SPREADING THE WORD ABOUT

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS

 
 

As Alpha Chi Omega sister, we raise awareness for domestic violence by promoting healthy relationships - hosting various philanthropy events throughput the year, and donating supplies to our local shelter for domestic violence survivors, Peaceful Paths. 

Our main philanthropic event is Purple Rain is our large philanthropy event we put on in the spring, which is a 5-on-5 dodge-ball style tournament using paint-soaked foam dodge-balls. Various Panhellenic, IFC, and other campus organizations, coached by our sisters, compete in these events to help us raise money for domestic violence awareness.


Our other large philanthropy event is Casino Night, the newly established annual event was hosted Fall of 2018. During the event, we host blackjack and poker dealers at our home on Panhellenic Drive, and invite members of our campus community to participate in the competition. The winning participant wins money towards charity of their choosing. All other proceeds from the event go to Peaceful Paths.


Peaceful Paths is located here in Gainesville and serves as a shelter for women who are victims of domestic abuse. In addition to Purple Rain and Casino Night, we host multiple service events to raise funds and supplies to help our local shelter and promote domestic violence awareness.

The fight against domestic violence is an every-day battle, but by working together, we can help end the fight.
