Saskatoon, SK, October 20, 2014 – The first hangar dance, Night with STARS, for STARS’ Saskatoon base ended on a high note Friday night after more than $75,000 was raised for STARS air ambulance. Held at the Saskatoon hangar, more than 350 people took in the evening of food, dancing, auctions and live entertainment.
“The support we have received from the Saskatchewan community has been incredible,” said Andrea Robertson, STARS president and CEO. “We are so thankful for everyone who made this hangar dance a huge success. For us, it’s all about the patient and these funds will help us reach those who need us when seconds count.”
A non-profit, charitable organization, STARS operates with a community-partnered model consisting of government, corporate partners, and support from communities and individual donors. All funds raised in Saskatchewan, stay in the province, and go towards operating the Regina and Saskatoon bases.
STARS provides specialized emergency medical care and transportation for critically ill and injured patients. Our physicians, nurses, paramedics and pilots work with a team of dedicated support staff and community partners to save lives. STARS has bases in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Regina, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
