Wine Survivor in Support of United Way

Date & Time:
November 6, 2017 - November 17, 2017

Who: Faculty of Arts faculty, staff, and students

What: Play Wine survivor

When: Purchase tickets between November 6th and November 17th.

Where: Drop by CMSS – 8th Floor Social Sciences

Why: In support of the United Way

How: Bring a bottle wine and purchase a $10 entry ticket.

The FACULTY OF ARTS and the CENTRE FOR MILITARY, SECURITY AND STRATEGIC STUDIES (CMSS) Survivor will not put you in physical danger but will test your patience and determination in winning not a million dollars, but a vast collection of wine!

Starting Monday, November 17th, CMSS will draw 1 name per day: if your name gets drawn, you are sent to “Redemption Island”. You may pay to get off Redemption Island and back into the game, but that will cost you proof of a pledge to the United Way!  This means that if you have already made your pledge, print your receipt and use it as an Immunity Idol if your name gets drawn! If you have not shown proof that you have made a pledge by November 30th, you are kicked off the island.

*** On Friday, December 1st at 3:00pm, ONE name will be drawn and the winner will be the
Wine Survivor! ***
