March 25, 2014
Alberta, March 25, 2014 – Celebrations are taking place across Alberta today following the announcement of the 2014 STARS Lottery grand prize winners. The lottery raised over $11 million net, with 3,200 prizes worth more than $5.6 million retail.
High River resident and Red Deer show home winner William Rader was affected by the 2013 floods in southern Alberta.
“We were out of our home for almost two months,” said Rader. “To hear that we won a house is surreal. It’s a lot to let sink in.”
This year’s top five grand prize winners are:
• Neil Lunn and Mona Cardinal of Didsbury
Calgary show home worth $1.3 million
• Bart Grover of Calgary
Edmonton show home worth $964,000
• William Rader of High River
Red Deer show home worth $945,000
• Andre Lavigne of Fort McMurray
Lethbridge show home worth $799,000
• Brodin Fyke of Lethbridge
Home away from home truck and trailer package worth $127,430
Lethbridge resident and winner of the 2014 GMC truck and Arctic Fox 5th wheel trailer, Brodin Fyke, has a personal connection to STARS.
“My wife was in a motocross accident 10 years ago and was airlifted by STARS, so I believe this is a great cause to support,” said Fyke. “I buy a ticket every year.”
The STARS Lottery continues to be STARS’ single largest source of funding in Alberta, helping critically ill and injured patients across the province. This was the 21st annual STARS Lottery, which has set records by selling out every year since it began - raising more than $132 million since 1994.
