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).
