PILOT BUTTE – A victim flown by STARS air ambulance had a chance to tell her story at the organization’s home lottery launch Wednesday morning.
“No one had realized that the log had gone right through, exiting just under my shoulder blade,” she began.
Karrie Derrin was impaled by a poplar tree in an ATV accident in Moose Mountain 18 months ago. She said she hopes people will recognize the importance of STARS in the province.
Derrin was addressing a crowd in the living room of a 28 hundred square foot house near Pilot Butte. Located in the newly-developed Spruce Creek Estates, the house comes fully-furnished and landscaped.
The third annual home lottery is expected to raise $2 million for STARS.
The $1.45 million home is not the only prize though – there’s also a chance to win an early bird prize package, which includes a 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML350 and a four-night Las Vegas vacation for two.
Tickets can be purchased for $60, two for $100 or six for $250.
