STARS lottery winners

STARS lottery winners announced April 12

Today was the big day for the STARS Air Ambulance Lottery draw.

One of the winners of a home bought tickets to show support after her husband needed STARS and another house winner is a former firefighter who knows the value of STARS Air Ambulance.  Congratulations to all the winners and to the STARS lottery, which again, thanks to Albertans had a sell out lottery.

The top prize winners are:

James Kotyk of Calgary wins the Calgary show home, valued at $1.1 million.  Shari Macdonald of Delburne has a new address – she is the winner of the Sylvan Lake show home, worth just over $900,000.  Kenneth and Cynthia Fenwick of Red Deer won the Sherwood Park show home which is worth $856,000 and the final home in the draw now belongs to Arthur Hohn of Stirling.  He can call the Lethbridge show home, valued at $770,000 home.

The final big prize went to Gary Rands of Cherry Grove.  He gets to take his new home wherever he wants.  Gary won the home-away-from-home truck and trailer package which was valued at just under $130,000.

Sylvan Lake show home winner Shari Macdonald from Delburne said she was in absolute shock when she heard the news. “My husband was flown by STARS in 1999, which is why I buy the lottery tickets,” said Macdonald.  “I didn’t expect to win.”

Kenneth Fenwick of Red Deer, who is the winner of the Sherwood Park show home said he knows the importance of STARS because he is a retired firefighter. “I think everybody should support STARS. You never know when you’re going to need them,” said Fenwick. “I’m just flabbergasted – I’ve never won anything over $100 in my life – I’m bouncing off the walls!”

This year’s lottery generated over $10 million net for the non-profit charitable organization. “The STARS Lottery continues to be the largest single source of funding for STARS in Alberta,” said Andrea Robertson, STARS president and CEO. “Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and thank you to all Albertans who continue to support STARS.”

Here is a list of other top prize winners:

Calvin Kawa of Calgary wins a 2012 Audi Q5.  Micheline and Denis Hebert of St. Vincent will be driving a 2012 BMW 328i Cabriolet.  Emil and Bev Spengler of Taber are the lucky winners of a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT.  The winner of a 2012 Acura MDX is Winter Hawk of Edmonton.  And finally, Scott Starling of Edmonton cruises home with a new, 2012 Toyota Camry XLE v6.

  28. Seeta Ramlochan says:

    Am I a winner? I have been supporting this lottery ever since it started and I have never even won one of the little prizes far more the big one. I am starting to think that it is a rigged. Let me know what you think?

  29. Seeta Ramlochan says:

    Whats with all the secret and cannot access the list of winners. I thought this was a public lottery. You guys needs to be investigated. I am not sure I want to support this lottery again. You are acting and sounding like a third world currupted country.

    Dear commenters;

    You are posting on Beacon News, an online daily newspaper. We have no affiliation with STARS Lottery, we simply ran news stories on the winners. You can find out if you are a winner by visiting the STARS Lottery web site listed in the web site in the story above.
