Upcoming Events

Wine Survivor – November 1 – 30

Returning for its 6th year, Wine Survivor is a game played over email. Contestants enter by donating to the United Way and purchasing a bottle of wine to add to the “prize pot”. Once the game begins, a random person is selected each weekday and they are “voted off the island”. The last three standing are the winners and the pot is split among them.

Casting calls are closed for this year but if you’re interested in playing next year please email unitedway.ok.@ubc.ca.
