CALGARY, December 17, 2020 – Friends of STARS Experience Alberta (FOSEA) is launching an exciting project in support of STARS and Alberta’s tourism industry.  Alberta Sponsors have generously contributed to 50 “Alberta Experience” prize packages worth $64,000+ providing winners a chance to enjoy the wonders of their own backyard in 2021.   STARS will host an online raffle for these Alberta Experience packages.

Prize packages are organized into five categories: Family Fun; Family Sports Enthusiasts; Attractions, Entertainment& Activities; Sports Enthusiasts and Arts, Nature & Outdoor Fun.  The custom packages include a wide range of exciting activities including “glamping”, white water rafting, hot air balloon rides, golfing and much much more! Winners will experience Alberta from Wood Buffalo to the Mighty Peace; Jasper to Banff; Rocky Mountain House to Drumheller; Lethbridge to the Crowsnest Pass along many other regions throughout our great Province.

  • Tickets can be purchased for individual categories at one for $20 or three for $50.
  • The draw will take place on February 1, 2021.
  • Raffle tickets can be purchased at

“The COVID19 situation has limited what Albertans can do and experience this year, which has hurt the province’s tourism industry,” said Debora Rice-Salomons, Co-Chair of FOSEA. “We are a group of volunteers who want to help raise spirits by giving people something to get excited about while boosting tourism and supporting the life-saving work of STARS.”

“As a non-profit organization, we rely on support from organizations like this and the generosity of Albertans to ensure STARS is there for the next patient in need,” said Andrea Robertson, STARS president and CEO. “Money raised through this raffle will allow STARS to excel in the level of care we give by providing innovative technology and tools for the highest trained medical professionals and crew members.”

Our goal for the Friends of STARS Experience Alberta project is to raise $100,000 for STARS.   We invite Albertans to purchase tickets to support STARS, Alberta Tourism and Raise their Spirits as they Experience Alberta in 2021
