In 2016, given the economic uncertainty the province was facing, we had no idea what to expect when we made our plea to Albertans to support our lottery. The response turned out to be overwhelming in every sense of the word. Our phone lines were jammed. Website traffic surged. More than $2 million worth of tickets were purchased in just three days and we managed to sell out once again for the 23rd year in a row.
As a small gesture of appreciation to our steadfast supporters, we placed a decal on our Alberta-based helicopters that read Times are tough, Albertans are tougher. Immediately, we were overwhelmed by requests to purchase copies of the sticker and support STARS in the process. We are proud to now make those stickers available for purchase by those who stood by us.
These replica decals measure 3 inches high by 6 inches wide (7.6 cm by 15.2 cm). The artwork is printed in white on a clear background, and would look ideal on a window or dark-coloured bumper.
