Welcome to our October Occupation Extravaganza!

October is jam packed with recognition days and weeks. Keep an eye on the Purple Works page to see everyone we're able to highlight this month!

And you know SEIU-West loves to celebrate you, our members. And what better way to do that than a massive month-long contest packed full of prizes!

So, here's the deal. Every week we'll announce a new contest—don't worry, we'll tell you everything you need to do that week—and the sweet, sweet prizes that go along with it. All you need to do is follow the instructions for that week and you're entered to win! Simple as that.

As a little added bonus, every time you complete the weekly instructions, you receive an entry into the Grand Prize Draw (the prize will be announced later this month, but trust us, it's good!). Want yet another entry into the Grand Prize Draw? Complete a Purple Works profile and you get a bonus entry for the Grand Prize, and an entry into the prize draw for completed profiles!

That's right, if you complete a Purple Works profile and enter every week's contest, that's five chances to win the Grand Prize! And, that's also one entry into five other prize draws!

The Prizes:

Prizes include, but are not limited to, SEIU-West merchandise and/or gift certificates, food delivery and/or restaurant/grocery vouchers, assorted prize packages, experiences, and more!

The Fine Print:
