The final Ole Miss Theta Encore show raised $66,313 for the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) association Wednesday night at the Gertrude Ford Center.

Delta Gamma sorority took home first place with its production “Where are they now?” which explored the evolution of various pop stars’ careers. DG won the overall competition by raising $13,034 for CASA.

“The performance was amazing,” Delta Gamma member Anna Brock said. “We got to see all our hard work pay off and we had so much fun.”

CASA is a national organization that supports and trains court-appointed volunteer advocates for abused/neglected children. Their mission is to help every child in the U.S. “be safe, have a permanent home and the opportunity to thrive.”

The future of Theta Encore is uncertain following the recent announcement of the closure of Kappa Alpha Theta’s UM chapter. According to the show’s emcee, Johanna Keosseian, a senior member of Kappa Alpha Theta, said there is talk of continuing the program in years to come through an “encore club.”
