domestic violence awareness


The Alpha Chi Omega Foundation is dedicated to supporting domestic violence awareness, prevention, and education. This national altruistic project is enacted throughout the numerous Alpha Chi chapters across the country.


Alpha Chi Omega at UCLA, the Alpha Psi chapter, is committed to raising awareness of domestic violence and works to benefit the Santa Monica Sojourn Shelter, our local shelter for battered adults and children. To raise money, each year, we host our signature philanthropy event, our "Best in the West" Poker Tournament. 


To date, Alpha Chi at UCLA is proud to have raised $254,367.85 for the fight against domestic violence.

We at Alpha Chi Omega want to make sure that everyone has access to help when they need it. The following are the phone numbers for the Sojourn Hotline and UCLA's Counseling and Pyschological Services (CAPS).

Sojourn Hotline:  310-264-6644

UCLA CAPS: 310-825-0768

best in the west



Our annual Best in the West philanthropy event is a Texas Hold 'Em poker tournament and silent auction.  Each year is always a night of fun, fundraising, and philanthropy!


This year, we will be holding our Best in the West event on February 8th, 2019. We will be starting off the exciting night with live performances from various student groups, blackjack, roulette, a silent auction and, of course, our Texas Hold 'Em poker tournament.


We are so thankful to those who have contributed to making Best the West a success in the past seven years and are determined to continue supporting such an incredibly important cause. 


We hope to see you at Best in the West this year! There is a $25 donation to participate in the poker tournament and a $10 donation to enjoy the event. A $150 deal is provided to teams of seven. Players can purchase buybacks to buy back into the tournament; the price of these buybacks will increase as the tournament progresses. 


You may pre-register by making your payment at any time using the donation methods below. Please specify in the notes whether you will be playing or particpating in the event.
