The University of Washington’s Chi Sigma Alpha will be hosting its 10th annual awareness concert on May 16 called Music 4 Life.

Music 4 Life benefit show has been held yearly as Chi Sigma Alpha’s main fundraiser for their local and national philanthropies. Music 4 Life aims to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and UW’s Experimental Education Unit (EEU) while showcasing the talents of community members.

Asian American Youtube star David Choi will be headlining the show. Other acts include Chi Sigma Alpha Dance Team, Hana_B, I’m with Amy, JRodTwins, Leanna Le, Roland Arii, Sendai Era, and UW Bollywood Kahaani Dance Team.

Chi Sigma Alpha works directly with The Make-A-Wish Foundation (Northwest Region) and aids in fundraising to help local (and national) children’s dreams come true. The sisters also help prepare special care packages for the children who travel the distance for their life-long wishes to come true.

In the EEU program, children with neurological injuries (including autism and Down syndrome) can take classes with teachers specialized in helping these children gain an ordinary education. During parent-teacher meetings, Chi Sigma Alpha National Sorority, Inc. volunteers to play with and babysit the children on a regular basis during the school year. Chi Sigma Alpha continues its support for the EEU by volunteering for the Annual EEU Gala, which raises thousands of dollars to fund the EEU and provide education for the enrolled children of low-income families at no cost.
