Throughout the campaign, along with prizes from raffles and the like, we hold weekly draws for $50 gift cards to a merchant of your choice.

There are plenty of options to choose from and those include giving to charity. And while we love providing those options, we also want you to take this opportunity to enjoy YOUR win, by choosing something for yourself. It's OK to treat yourself, too. You deserve it.

*** Gift cards are a taxable benefit, and we must advise Payroll who wins. The addition of a $50 winning may or may not make a difference to your T4.

Prize Options


Additional Information

1 - A gift card to our campus store

Talk about staying local! How much more local can you get than the campus store in Sequoia?!

2 - A gift card to a business of your choice


Businesses must sell gift cards online or be in the Colwood/Langford/Sooke area. 

Choose from Tim's, Starbucks, Walmart, Superstore, Shell, PetroCan, etc.

3 - A donation to the RRU Christmas Family support efforts

We would connect with the organizers to see what is needed.

They might suggest gift cards to a grocery store or to Walmart etc. We would purchase the gift card on your behalf. You will receive a thank you email from them.

4 - A donation to the charity of your choice

If you donate your winnings to a charity other than United Way, there will be a standard administrative fee applied of 10% of the total donation, to a maximum of $100.

Which means $5 of your $50 prize will go toward admin fees and $45 will go to your chosen charity.

If you donate to United Way, there is no admin fee.

5 - A gift card to any of the businesses through support local BC

If you choose this option, you don't need to specify what store you'll be supporting.

We would send you a generic support local gift card via email. You can then choose the local business you would like to support.

Please let us know if you have questions.
