The first ever STARS Lottery in Saskatchewan has officially launched with 2,206 prizes worth over $3.4 million. The STARS Lottery is a significant source of funding to help keep STARS in the sky.
"STARS came to Saskatchewan through partnerships with corporate donors and government. Now that we are here, the success of STARS depends on additional support from the community," said Rod Gantefoer, executive vice president for the STARS Foundation. "The STARS Lottery is an integral fundraiser to generate the necessary revenue to keep STARS operating."
The STARS Lottery includes three grand prizes worth over $2.4 million, including two beautiful Million dollar show homes in Regina and Saskatoon, and a home-away-from home truck and fifth wheel combination worth nearly $200,000.
There is also an exceptional early bird package to be won: a 2012 Mercedes SLK350, as well as a four night get-a-way for two at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, plus $5,000 in fun money.
In addition to the grand and early bird prizes, there are five vehicles, 11 vacations and 2,186 other great prizes including cash, furniture, jewelry and luggage. Two lucky winners can also enjoy a flight of a lifetime aboard a STARS helicopter.
All proceeds from the STARS Lottery will stay in Saskatchewan to support both bases.
STARS is a charitable non-profit organization that currently provides service from a base in Regina and will be opening a second base in Saskatoon in the fall of 2012.
