The University of Winnipeg Women’s College Basketball Team is holding a Sobeys gift cards fundraiser from now until January 31st.




The purpose of this fundraiser is to help defray the costs involved with expenses through the the program including equipment, fees, travel etc.  This fundraising initiative benefits you and our team and we would greatly appreciate your support in this endeavour.  Our sales goal is $20,000-$25,000 in gift cards for which we will receive a percentage of the total sales.






If your order is over $200, we will give you two free game tickets to attend any Wesmen home games. ($20 Value)

How it works:

There is no out of pocket expense for you - our supporters: if you contribute $200 you receive $200 back in gift cards. It's a win/win situation!

You get all your money in the form of Sobey gift cards while still having the satisfaction of supporting the College Wesmen Women's program.

Sobey gift cards have a declining balance that can be used over several shopping trips until there is no value left on the card.


Sobey gift cards have many advantages:

  • Easy to use

  • No expiry date

  • No transaction fees

  • Valid at all Sobeys stores and pharmacies

  • Transferable throughout Canada

  • Perfect gifts - especially for students!

Gift cards will be available in the following denominations: $20, $50, $100 and $500.


Orders may be paid in cash or by cheque (payable to "The University of Winnipeg").


Please buy generously. The larger the amount we purchase from Sobeys, the higher the percentage they give back to us.
