On June 19th, RSA hosted its 25th Annual Charity Golf Tournament in support of STARS Air Ambulance at Country Hills Golf Club in Calgary, Alberta. Stars and RSA began their partnership 25 years ago because RSA saw that it was integral to have emergency resources available for people outside of urban areas. STARS has conducted over 30,000 missions so far and has helped thousands of people over the years. 
“We just see it as a natural alignment with RSA to support STARS” says Paul Lucarelli, RSA’s head of Commercial & Global Specialty Lines, “We want to make sure that people are getting the care that they need during the time of need.” 
The tournament this year was definitely a success, with a total of $637,740 raised up to date and a record breaking total of $50,000 raised this year for STARS. 
We’d like to give a huge shout out to those who have met their own successes in the tournament. Congratulations to the following golf stars:
