Omega Alpha Phi Supports Run for Mercy
Omega Alpha Phi, a Greek social service club at Lee University in Cleveland, TN, has been in a small partnership with Mercy Ministries for about 8 years. They annually host a benefit formal called Snowball; a very classy and elegant event. There is a formal dinner, valet parking, jazz band during dinner and they end the night with a DJ and dancing. This event is held at the Fairyland Club on Lookout Mountain and all the proceeds go directly to Mercy Ministries.

This year the President of Omega, Renee List wanted to be a little more involved with Mercy Ministries, so when she heard about Run for Mercy, she thought this would be perfect! She planned 2 car washes and advertised them all over campus. Since the weather has been perfect for a car wash, she felt it would be an easy and fun way to raise some quick money!

Omega Alpha Phi is also planning on going to the dorms and knocking on the doors asking for donations. The club has about 40 members, and plans to divide the dorms and conquer!

Renee List said, "I'm always really surprised with how much we can raise just by going door to door. Students will give their laundry money or whatever spear change they have, and it adds up fast!"

Thank you Omega Alpha Phi for your support of Run for Mercy!
