And That’s a Wrap on the 2021 Brock Hall United Way Campaign!

The end of November marks the end of our 2021 Brock Hall United Way Campaign. While we’ve wrapped up our official Brock Hall campaign, donations still count towards our funds raised. Make a one-time donation, or commit to payroll donations at

Highlights of this year’s campaign:

  • 54 payroll donors
  • 14 one-time donors
  • Funds raised thorough the Brock Hall campaign so far – $19721

Wine Survivor

In addition to raising funds through payroll donations, the Brock Hall United Way Committee hosted Brock Hall Wine Survivor. Twenty participants battled it out over three weeks to become one of the last three Survivors to avoid elimination. Our amazing UBC United Way Campaign Associate, Alex Kinkead performed an uncanny likeness of Jeff Probst, hosting and recording all of our elimination challenges and donor prize draws.


It was a hard fought battle, but in the end, it paid off to have immunity passes (take note for next year!). The final three survivors were: Ashley Elchuk (final survivor), Coby Thurmeier (second to last survivor) and Jessica Iverson (third to last survivor)! The three winners split 19 bottles of wine and a six pack of beer, high-fived, and left Brock Hall  that day emanating with power, glory and triumph.
