Swishes for Wishes is Chi Omega's philanthropy fundraiser that benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The first time we hosted Swishes was in March 2018. It was a basketball themed event at the Chi Omega house, with games, food, music, and trunk shows. This year will be our second Swishes, and we want to incorporate the basketball theme further into the event by hosting a basketball tournament at the UREC. The tournament will be 3 vs 3, so teams can have a maximum of 6 players and it will be $10 per player. Tickets for entry into the event are also $10. Since players are paying $10 to be on a team, they will not be charged for entry into the event. Both players and ticket holders will have access into Chi Omega house and will receive one plate of food. The event begins at 5pm. Around 6pm, I will gather the players for the tournament, and we will walk over to the UREC as a group, or players can meet at the UREC. Basketball games will begin at 6:30pm on the new outdoor basketball courts, located on the tennis courts right behind Chi Omega. There are several reasons for this. Only full time students/UREC members can enter the facility (unless guests want to pay another $10), so the players will most likely all be students. However, by playing on these conveniently located courts, non-students like parents, siblings, and friends (which we expect a lot of) can still watch the basketball tournament through the fence right behind Chi Omega. Members will stay at Chi Omega to continue serving food and keep the event going for those who do not wish to watch the tournament. I am going to contact parking to ask if we can block off parking spots by these courts, in hopes of putting bleachers or chairs there for people to watch.
