A group of students from the University of Manitoba are throwing a fundraising social on Friday in anticipation for the spring flood.

The social will help Manitobans who will be impacted by flood waters in the coming weeks.

Rock Bar at 1931 Pembina Highway will host the social beginning at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 and every dollar will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross flood relief fund.

A 50/50 draw will also be held, with a signed Jonathan Toews Chicago Blackhawks jersey being the grand prize.

Tickets are available in the Drake Centre on the U of M’s Fort Garry campus, or by contacting one of the organizers on their Facebook page.
