The final pot for the STARS/SJHL 50-50 Lottery was $13,800. Half of the total proceeds are to be split between the SJHL and STARS, while the remainder will be paid to Sereggela. He will be taking home a total of $6,900.

“STARS has made a significant impact across Saskatchewan, saving many lives with their air ambulance service. We hope that the 50-50 partnership with STARS has helped raise the funds needed to replace the STARS helicopter fleet in Saskatchewan,” said SJHL president Bill Chow.

Since its inception in 1985, STARS has flown more than 45,000 missions across Western Canada. Last year alone, STARS flew 884 missions in Saskatchewan.

The proceeds to STARS from the SJHL partnership will support the non-profit’s fleet renewal efforts in the province.

“Just as the SJHL was built for communities by communities, so was STARS. Both organizations want to invest in our communities, and the progressive 50-50 fundraiser is a good way,” said Tammy Beauregard, development officer with the STARS Foundation.

Sereggela is a former head coach and general manager of the Estevan Bruins.
