Who You Help

All funds raised through the PSAC STARS & Spurs 50/50, presented by Precision Drilling will be directed back to STARS. These funds will ensure STARS can be there for the next critically ill or injured patient in need, that lives, works or plays in communities across Western Canada.

The Petroleum Services Association of Canada has been bringing industry leaders together to raise funds for STARS Air Ambulance for 27 years. While the petroleum services sector always operates as safely as possible, it is great to know that in case of an emergency, STARS is only a phone call away to support our industry, our communities, and our employees. That is why PSAC has helped to raise more than $17 million for STARS through the PSAC STARS & Spurs Gala. While the traditional gala format is not be feasible this year due to COVID-19 and its impacts on our economy, the commitment of PSAC to STARS remains the same. As a result, we have exciting plans to incorporate new physically distanced activities to raise funds for this critical service. Our theme this year is: Our Canadian Values, a concept shared by our energy industry and STARS. It’s an identity that supports the collective good from our hearts. In an initiative to raise the same level of funds to support STARS, the PSAC STARS & Spurs Gala has been split into three equally essential activities: Safe@Home Gala, 50/50 Raffle, & an Exclusive Live Industry Auction.
