Gurpreet Lail, PSAC President and CEO – 2022

“We want to thank all our members and customers for supporting this year’s Gala through their sponsorship, donations, and event attendance. With your help, we’ve raised over $18 million for STARS over the last 28 years. PSAC and member organizations from across Canada’s energy services sector support STARS to ensure there is a safety net for our employees, their families and community members, when they need it the most. We know we have the power to make a significant difference when we look towards the future with confidence and work together to build a safer, more sustainable world.”

Steve Glanville, STARS Gala Committee Chair – 2022

“This is STARS’ most ambitious capital campaign of the year and is necessary for STARS to progress in a way that will continue to serve communities in Western Canada for decades to come. It is because of the collaboration of event organizers, volunteers, sponsors, donors, and participants that we can continue to execute such a successful fundraising campaign. On behalf of the event committee, I am incredibly grateful to all of you for your generosity and commitment to STARS. Thank you!”

Event History

The annual PSAC STARS & Spurs Gala is the longest-running and largest fundraiser in Alberta. The event has raised more than $18 million for STARS since 1994 making it STARS’ most significant annual fundraising event.
PSAC is proud that the success of this annual event allows us to make a meaningful impact helping protect our communities, our families, our companies and our employees; and illustrates our ongoing importance to the Canadian economy and the future of energy.

The PSAC STARS & Spurs Gala is testimony to the priority energy services companies place on the safety of their employees, employees’ families, and their communities.

More than one thousand people attend the PSAC STARS & Spurs Gala each year. We count among our guests corporate executives, government officials, key representatives of the energy services sector and members of our communities. Many attend year after year, testimony to the excellence of the event, and its offerings of enjoyment, great auction items, fun and creative entertainment and networking possibilities.
