Chi Omega to host 65th annual Songfest on Dec. 4


The 65th edition of a holiday tradition at The University of Southern Mississippi is set for Sunday, Dec. 4 when Chi Omega sorority will host Songfest at Reed Green Coliseum on the Hattiesburg campus. Featuring some of the favorite sounds of the season performed by members of the USM Greek Life community, the event will begin at 5:30 p.m. and admission is free.

Songfest is the oldest Greek Life philanthropic event at USM. While there is no cost to attend, donations will be accepted at the door to support the event’s goal of granting the wishes of children through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“Songfest is one of the most rewarding parts of being in Chi Omega,” said chapter president Ellen Suss. “Involving an entire community to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses is awe-inspiring. Together, we directly impact the lives of children in the Hattiesburg community, and my goal is to raise enough money to grant wishes for at least five children.”
