It’s official! The Calgary Stampede Lotteries are back for 2015. It is your chance to “win like a champion” – which is this year’s theme for the campaign.  You are all community champions when supporting this great program – wouldn’t it be great to win like a champion as well?

The Stampede Lotteries are organized and planned by the volunteer Calgary Stampede Lotteries committee.  From licensing, advertising, promotions, prizing, draws, ticket management, technology, social media, webmaster, tickets, booths and selling, the 26-person committee works year-round to bring these great, fun lotteries to Calgarians’ every year. In return, the lottery programs bring in more than $6 million dollars to the Stampede and its service clubs, the Kinsmen Club of Calgary and the Rotary Club of Calgary South, the Calgary Marching Show Band Association and the Calgary Stampede Foundation and their many community programs.

This year’s Lotteries promise to be bigger and better than ever. Some of the exciting changes to the buy-in-advance campaign include:

–          An all new Early Bird prize of a 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe (June 12 deadline)

–          New bundle discounts and ticket packages – now with up to 75 chances to win

–          Ticket availability until the week before Stampede (June 26 deadline)

–          More than $1.3 Million in prizes!

Back for 2015, every ticket package includes bonus Calgary Stampede gate admissions and 50 per cent off discounts on Rodeo and Evening Show tickets.  Stampede Split’em 50 is also back – last year, the winner took home more than $225,000!

2015 also marks the 20th Anniversary of Homes by Avi’s partnership with Stampede Lotteries and the building of the Dream Home. Homes by Avi have special plans for this year’s home to mark this milestone.  Construction of the Dream Home is well underway, with the exterior siding going in place.  Just in time to proudly show off the Dream Home’s great exterior lines to all busy spring Stampede Park events.

Looking back at the 1995 home, it’s clear we have come a long way in only 20 years – our dreams and aspirations are a fair bit different.  We have come from modest bungalows to a large two story home with all the latest in design features. We also have come a long way in funding the very worthwhile charities that are touched by this great program.
