The 2013 Chi Omega Christmas Market wrapped up Thursday, February 20, 2014, with a check presentation at the home of Phil and Melissa Wise from 6-8 p.m.
2014 Chi Omega Christmas Co-Chairs Sara Koda and Allison Cox
The Dallas-area Chi Omega Alumnae, along with representatives from the 10 honored beneficiaries, gathered together to celebrate the 2013-year, as well as the past 36 years of giving to Dallas-area non-profits.  Originally pledging $205,000, the 2013 Chi Omega Christmas Market, held November 20-23, raised $282,626! This will allow for the Chi Omega Alumnae to give even more money to each beneficiary.
 
Market chairs Ashley Chapel and Beth Arnold presented checks to Chi Omega Education Corporation, Community Partners of Dallas , Foundation for the Education of Young Women, Healing Hands Ministries, Just Say YES, Make-A-Wish Foundation® of North Texas, North Texas Food Bank, Sky Ranch, Suicide and Crisis Center of North Texas and Chi Omega Collegiate Scholarships.
