Nationwide, the Alpha Chi Omega philanthropy is domestic violence awareness. Here at Texas, we partner up with SAFE, a center for battered women and children. They commit themselves to preventing domestic violence, sexual assault and breaking the cycle of violence in the Austin community. They offer a comprehensive and compassionate selection of services, providing support and resources for survivors to create independent lives free of violence for themselves and their families. Their ultimate goal is to create a community that is full of peace and safety for all. SAFE is ending sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change. We’ve worked very hard to be named SafePlace’s number one outside contributor.
Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention
Faith, Hope, & Fashion is an annual fashion show and silent auction that Alpha Chi Omega puts on to fight against domestic violence. This year, the fashion show is located at the AT&T Center near the UT campus. Our annual show this past spring rose over $98,000 for SAFE. Each year, Alpha Chi Omega continues to donate thousands in funding to support the fight against domestic violence. Sponsorships and donations from businesses around the Austin area generously contribute to our silent auction helping us make our philanthropic event a huge success.
In order to include all of Greek life, we recruit models from the other UT sororities and fraternities. In past years, our models have strutted down the runway in collections donated by Langford Market, Anthropologie, and many others.
