Prizes for the 2015 Stampede charity lotteries were valued at $1.3 million! A lucky group of people became Stampede Champions. Notable prizes up for grabs were a $864,000 dream home, almost a quarter of a million dollars cash, as well as a pickup truck with a boat.
This year’s Stampede Champions are Paul Allred (Rotary Dream Home), Mike Burnyeat (Truck & Fifth Wheel), Ken Pierson (Truck & Boat), Mike Moore (Truck & Toys), Kevin Willerton (Corvette Stingray), Lal Perera (GMC Yukon), Andrew Pike (Harley-Davidson), Frances Henrickson (Split’em 50/50 – $242,055 Cash), Marty & Gloria Jurgens (Early Bird Winner – 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe 1LT) and Linda & Paul Thomas (VIP Prize Winner – $10,599)
In spite of the economic climate, the 2015 Advanced Ticket Campaign and Stampede Lotteries achieved almost $7M in sales! These lottery programs help support the Calgary Stampede and its service clubs, the Kinsmen Club of Calgary and the Rotary Club of Calgary South, the Calgary Marching Show Band Association and the Calgary Stampede Foundation.
Thanks to the efforts of our wonderful sponsors and the hard work of volunteers–including the 25 hardworking Calgary Stampede Lotteries committee members and more than 1,000 passionate people from the Rotary Club of Calgary South, The Kinsmen Club of Calgary, the Calgary Marching Showband and the Calgary Stampede Foundation– more than 25,000 volunteer hours have led to this moment tonight.
Dreams came true for our Stampede Champions tonight– particularly winner of the Harley-Davidson, Andrew Pike and his companion Troy (who has friends that still can’t believe how lucky Andrew is).
GMC is the main supplier of our Kinsmen Wheels program and a key sponsor of the Calgary Stampede. Thank you Glenn Lemmerck, Omira Janmohammed and Christa Paterson for helping us celebrate Stampede Champions, like Kevin Willerton.
