GI Theta Chi 2017

What GI Theta Chi?

GI Theta Chi is a yearly fundraising effort to support the USO. This year we are organizing a three- day event consisting of Partial Proceeds Night, Letter Writing Night, and the main event featuring Water Balloon Battle Ship and a dollar hot dog cookout. EVERYONE can participate in the first two activities and the main event. In addition to participating in these activities, you and four friends can register a squad ($25) and participate in the water balloon battleship to compete with other squads for points. The squad with the most points will win McClanahan’s Gift Cards. 

Why the USO?

For 75 years, the USO has been the nation’s leading organization to serve the men and women in the U.S. military, and their families, throughout their time in uniform. From the moment they join, through their assignments and deployments, and as they transition back to their communities, the USO is always by their side.
