Every year Alpha Chi Omega hosts a fall philanthropy event to raise awareness against domestic violence.
Domestic violence is often something many like to turn a cheek to. It is easy to believe that it could never happen to you, but it is something that affects millions daily.
“What is even more remarkable is that the most common age of women affected is 18-24, which are college-aged women,” Alana Broe, a junior at Auburn University said. “Our philanthropy directly affects the women at Auburn, and we are passionate about raising a voice for these women to help keep them safe.
Alpha Chi aims to create a pleasurable atmosphere for all in attendance since domestic violence is a sensitive topic to discuss.
“In years passed we have done a dodge ball tournament, a “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” walk and a benefit dinner. This is different in that we are simply looking to allow others to give back while enjoying one of Auburn’s favorite musicians,” Broe said. “To me, it is a much more casual/laid-back event. Our goal is to make it easy and convenient for Auburn students to get involved and support our philanthropy.”
Alpha Chi’s goal is to show those personally affected by domestic violence that they are loved and cared for.
Make yourself more knowledgeable on this subject matter and help Alpha Chi in putting an end to domestic violence.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door; everyone 18 and older is welcome!
