Alberta – January 16, 2020 – When you hear the sound of a STARS helicopter, you know it is involved in a life-saving mission. When you buy your STARS lottery ticket, you’re helping fund our life-saving operations, tools and training needed to save lives.
The 27th edition of the STARS lottery launched today offering 2,575 prizes, valued at over $4.9 million.
“The community support that fuels this organization is just as important today as it was the day STARS was founded in 1985. When someone’s life is in jeopardy, it’s your support that trains our teams, puts the most advanced tools in our crew’s hands, and gets the helicopter in the air,” said STARS president and CEO, Andrea Robertson.
“Albertans are our allies in the fight for life and we simply cannot do our work without you. Your support of the STARS lottery helps us be there for the next patient that needs us.”
