As you know, the CUPE 59 Adult Christmas Party has been cancelled due to COVID-19. In its place, we have decided to do a 21 Festive Days of December event for all members of CUPE 59.

$50.00 Gift Card from Co-op
At the beginning of the contest, each member will be assigned a random number. That number will be put into a random number generator that will pick 20 individuals per day (beginning December 4 and ending December 24, 2020).

Samsung 55” Smart 4K HDR TV
The random number generator will also pick 2 lucky individuals for the Samsung TV Grand Prizes (December 25, 2020).

Winners will be posted to the web page and contacted via email.
Note: Each member can only win once
