Dana Burell Castagnos, Phi Delta/Mississippi State U
Central Florida Sisters Honor Event Chair Now Enrolled in Omega Chapter
In 2010, Kimberly Jessup, Alpha Kappa/North Carolina State U, and I co-chaired Harvest Hustle 5K, a fundraiser for the Orlando area Junior League's not-for-profit programs. As we planned the race, we realized we were Chi Omega Sisters. And even though Kim's job with ESPN transferred her to Connecticut before the event took place, she was, nevertheless, actively involved in planning the race and also helped another Junior League chapter plan a 5K race.00
Kim unexpectedly lost her life in May of 2011. In her honor, Chi Omegas from Psi Mu/U of Central Florida,Upsilon Beta/Rollins College, and the Central Florida Chi Omega Alumnae Chapter wore cardinal and straw to the event as a tribute to her life.
