Central Albertans win big in 2020 STARS Lottery

A few central Albertans won big in the 2020 STARS lottery.

Jeff Collins, of Rimbey, won a $1.1 million show home in Calgary and Sheldon Mudry, of Sylvan Lake, won a $927,780 show home in Edmonton. Additionally Lillian Kirtley of Stettler won the $2.8-million LUCKY STARS 50/50 draw.

The winners were announced Friday night after the draws were held in Calgary, and witnessed by STARS and Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis officials in accordance with provincial regulations.

“When STARS flies, you know it’s for the worst of the worst,” said Mudry, who purchases STARS lottery tickets every year.

“The level of care this team provides is just phenomenal. I work in construction, and whether I’m on the highway or on a site, it’s good to know they are there if I ever need them.”

Andrea Robertson, STARS president and CEO, said STARS is an integral part of the emergency response system in Alberta and continues to fly during crises such as the pandemic we are currently facing.

“Please know that our crews remain mission ready and that your support of our lottery directly helps patients in a time of great need. Thank you to everyone who has supported our lottery for the past 27 years, and congratulations to all the winners,” said Robertson.

The STARS lottery is the non-profit’s largest fundraiser and provides vital operational support for our three Alberta bases. Ninety per cent of main lottery tickets were sold this year while the 50/50 take home jackpot was $2.8 million – the highest total to date. The 27th edition of the lottery offered 2,575 prizes, worth more than $4.9 million retail.

Lacombe’s Debraa White also won $10,000 in cash.
