The 2024 STARS lottery, a fundraising initiative to support its medical services, was launched in Edmonton on Wednesday.
For nearly three decades, STARS has transported critically ill and injured patients across Alberta, eastern British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
The STARS lottery plays a crucial role in securing funding for the organization, its president said.
“We are community funded…and this lottery will fully fund one of the three of our bases for the year, their operational costs. So it is our biggest fundraiser and it’s critically important to our missions,” said Katherine Emberly, president and chief executive officer of STARS.
STARS lottery 2024 offers more than 2,100 prizes worth $4.8 million, including a showhome, a Winnebago RV, and a $500,000 early bird prize.
Lottery tickets start at $30.
