“Beware the Ides of March” Wine Survivor Contest

Win Some Wine and Support the CSA!  The fundraiser will provide  funds to help support the  CSA’s many social, learning and physical activities, events and programs. The “wine survivor” format is a proven, fun oriented fundraising event that encourages participation in a collaborative, social way.  Please contact any  Board Member or our Office Administrator for more details.

Participating is easy:

1.    Create a team of five with a catchy team name. Anyone can enter on a team more than once or belong to more than one team!

2.   For each of the 5 team members, collect 1) a bottle of wine ($20 min value) OR $15 to have the CSA purchase a bottle of wine AND 2) a $20 entry fee for the CSA.  Participation is open to both CSA members and non-members alike.

3.   Drop your team info, wine and money (or cheque) at the Seniors’ Center starting the “Ides of March” (March 15th) through to April 12th

4.   Check this website or your email from April 15th to April 25th as we eliminate players by draws every week day at 2:00 pm at the Seniors’ Center

5.   Winners will be announced at a final draw Happy Hour starting at 5:30 pm on Friday April 26th at the Seniors’ Center. There will be a cash bar.  Attend as a guest of a CSA member if a non-member.  Bring an appetizer and come and cheer on the final winners!
