Preceptor Omicron's most recent service project benefited a new pediatric room at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, VA. Recently the sorority donated man power and supplies to transform a pediatric treatment room into a colorful and exciting space. The sorority was featured in "City Magazine" for their generous donation.

The sorority has been asked if they are willing to donate another similarly decorated room to the hospital. Help them raise funds to facilitate this makeover by celebrating this New Year's Eve with us!

Every year, the sorority members each select a special charity and earmark funds to share with 12 charities that are close to their hearts. For example:
  • Cystic Fibrosis Association
  • SPCA of the Roanoke Valley
  • Saint Francis of Assisi animal shelter
  • Various missionaries
  • Autism awareness
  • Cancer research
  • Scholarship in Memory of Booster Club Member of Salem High School
  • Feeding America
  • Carilion Pediatric Unit
  • Teen Challenge for Girls
  • Animal rescue
  • Children of military families
Local charities that receive donations:
  • West End Center
  • Turning Point
  • Rescue Mission
  • Samaritan Inn
  • Bradley Free Clinic
  • Blue Ridge Behavioral Services
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Salvation Army
  • Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital
The local Roanoke, VA chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, Preceptor Omicron was founded in 1975. Since 1980, the annual New Year's Eve Gala at the Historic Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center has been this chapter's main source of funding for donations. All proceeds from the New Year's Eve Gala go to benefit Roanoke Valley charitable organizations. Preceptor Omicron's other collections provide monetary support to disaster relief organizations for devestating events such as the 2004 tsunami in Asia.
