Fall 2019 Fundraiser

Welcome to the Red Deer Arts Council’s Booze Survivor 2019!

How it works:

  • To enter, pay a cash fee of $25 plus either $13 OR either a bottle of wine/a 6-pack of beer/a 375ml bottle of spirits ‘a mickey’ valued at $13. No homemade alcohol can be accepted.
  • You can enter a team of 5, or as an individual. If you enter as an individual we will assign you to a team. You can enter more than once and be on multiple teams to increase your odds. Each entry costs the same amount.
  • The cut-off date for entries is 12 pm noon on November 29, 2019 or earlier if we sell our maximum of 300 entries.
  • Once all the entries are in, and the teams are finalized, we will start kicking people off the island by drawing names (people, not teams.) But don’t panic, you can still win as long as one person on your team is still in the running.
  • Draws will take place on December 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th with the winning teams announced December 6th at our Kiwanis Gallery First Friday Opening Reception. Team captains will also be notified by email at each drawing and contacted to organize prize distribution.

What you win—BOOZE, of course, and lots of it!

  • Prizes are awarded to teams as follows, based on 300 units of alcohol:
    • 1st place –100 units of alcohol, 20 per team member
    • 2nd place -70 units of alcohol, 14 per team member

    • 4th place –40 units of alcohol, 8 per team member
    • 5th place –25 units of alcohol, 5 per team member

Complete Rules for Booze Survivor 2019

2019 Booze Survivor Raffle Rules

Raffle License 544869

  • Each individual entrant will pay a fee of $25 cash plus contribute either: a bottle of wine, a 375ml bottle of spirits, or a case/six-pack of beer with an approximate value of $13, OR contribute $13 and we will purchase the alcohol. We will accept a maximum of 300 individual entries into the raffle. Maximum proceeds $11,400.
  • The wine, beer or spirits must be bottled and sealed commercially (not homemade).
  • Each entrant will be assigned to a 5-member team. Organizers will ensure that the total number of entries is divisible evenly by 5. Any entries that cannot be assigned to a team will be refunded. Individuals may enter more than once, and each entry will be treated as a separate entry to increase your odds of winning. Each entry costs the same amount.
  • Each team will have one person designated as team captain. The team captain is responsible for notifying other team members when their team has been eliminated, and distributing prizes if the team is a winner.
  • Entries will be accepted until 12pm noon on November 29, 2019.

  • As in the TV Show Survivor, participants are expelled until only the winner remains. Expulsion draws will start on Monday, December 2, 2019 and will be held daily until Friday, December 6, 2019 until only 10 entries remain. The final 10 will be drawn and announcement of winning teams will be made at the December 6th, 2019 First Friday event at the Kiwanis Gallery inside the downtown branch of the Red Deer Public Library. As names are drawn, that person is expelled, but may still be on a winning team. A team is eliminated when all team members have been expelled. Approximately 1/5 of the teams will be eliminated each day. Draws will continue until all teams have been eliminated except 1. The final team remaining is the First Place Winner; the second-last team to be eliminated is the Second Place Winner, and so on. Prizes are awarded for final 5 teams, as well as a consolation prize for the first team eliminated.
  • Team captains will be notified daily via Facebook post and/or email of the draw results on each of the 5 draw days. The final draws and announcement of winning teams will be made at the December 6th, 2019 First Friday event at the Kiwanis Gallery inside the downtown branch of the Red Deer Public Library. Team captains will be notified by phone or email if not in attendance. Prizes will be available for pick up by the team captains from the Red Deer Arts Council office on Monday December 9th from 10am-5pm or at a mutually agreed alternate date and location. It is the responsibility of the team captain to arrange delivery to team members.
