Once tickets are sold out, audiences will still have an opportunity to score seats through two contests. A national Radio.com contest will award one lucky listener with a grand prize trip, including roundtrip airfare for the winner and one guest to LA, hotel accommodations, and two tickets to WE CAN SURVIVE. Entries will be accepted at Radio.com and WeCanSurvive.com from September 18 to September 29, 2017. One winner will be chosen randomly. The contest is sponsored by Westinghouse.
Then, from October 2-6, 2017, 25 CBS RADIO stations across the U.S. will host a local text-to-win contest. Three times per weekday, each station will offer a special entry code on-air that listeners can text to be entered for a chance to win roundtrip airfare for each winner and one guest to LA, hotel accommodations, and two tickets to the show. There will be 15 lucky winners in this contest.
