Beta Theta Pi and Chi Omega Support the St. Louis Arc
Every year, students at Washington University in St. Louis join together to host the oldest and longest student-run carnival for the St. Louis community. The carnival is complete with rides, games, and funnel cake. Additionally, various student groups have joined together to construct facades, or full sized structures designed around a central theme.
This year, Brothers of the Alpha Iota chapter of Beta Theta Pi and Sisters of the Tau Mu chapter of Chi Omega Sorority joined together to build a facade based around the "Ancient Temple" theme. During the carnival, members of the organization conducted an hour long production inside of the facade. In short, this was no easy feat and they relied upon weeks of preparation and specialized construction, design, and acting skills from various members of our organizations. The ChiO–Beta actually won the Spirit Cup - an award that goes to the group that dedicates the most spirit towards their efforts and portrays the most enthusiasm to the carnival!
As a part of our involvement in the carnival, we strive to build a relationship with a local non-profit that benefits the St. Louis community. This year, they chose to work with the St. Louis Arc. Their involvement with St. Louis Arc is two-fold: first and foremost, they are striving to provide hours of community service and secondly, they are conducting a fundraising campaign in order to help support the Arc's mission. With this in mind, we ask that you consider donating to the St. Louis Arc by clicking here.
Thank you on behalf of the members of Beta Theta Pi and Chi Omega for supporting the St. Louis Arc.
