To ensure that all survivors have an equal opportunity to win, tickets will be distributed through random selection. Please fill out the form below to be entered into the draw. The draw will close on Friday, September 16, 2022 at 4:30 pm.
Winners will be contacted the following week and must pick up their tickets and t-shirts by Wednesday, September 28, 2022 at 4:30 pm.
