Led by automotive enthusiasts and businessmen Vaughn Wyant and Wayne Halabura, the team features premiere custom automotive builder Byran Thiessen of Creative Concepts Restorations and has garnered the support of countless suppliers with in-kind and cash donations to support the project.
Designer Bruce Williams worked closely with Creative Concepts Restorations to create the unique design details and renderings of the Pegasus Mustang; Tom Foster, Industrial Machine and Manufacturing, lent expertise to the build; Rick Ironside, Regal Motors – Prairie Ford dealer liaison.
Rounding out the committee are businessmen Gord Broda (Broda Group), Murray Totland (arbutus Properties), Shanda Doerksen (Industrial Machine & Manufacturing), Rita Schenn, STARS VIP Wade Cassidy, Ryan Gobeil (brother Morgan was a Humboldt Bronco), Darren Beasley (Conexus Credit Union), Trevor Friesen (MNP), Jeri-Lynn Johnston (STARS) and Lori Leach.
A key ingredient to building awareness and marketing around the Pegasus Project
was securing the perfect ambassador(s) for the campaign.
Saskatoon-born and raised stage, film and TV actor Kim Coates (Stratford, Broadway, Blackhawk Down, Sons of Anarchy, Bad Blood, etc.) was a natural choice and he agreed without hesitation. Kim’s passion and personality for the Pegasus Project were a perfect match and he continues to support every aspect of the campaign with his love for Saskatchewan and for the critical work of STARS.
The Saskatchewan hockey connection was boosted with the support of Brayden Schenn, Jayden Schwartz and Tyler Bozak of the Stanley Cup-winning St.Louis Blues. Luke Schenn, winning the 2020 Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning, also shares his support for the Pegasus Project. All are from Saskatchewan and, given the strong connection of STARS to hockey and the 2018 Humboldt Broncos accident, the support of these NHLers is heartfelt and positive.
Finally, former Humboldt Bronco Kaleb Dahlgren is an honorary ambassador. Kaleb is donating proceeds from the sale of his book “Crossroads” to the STARS Pegasus Project.
PEGASUS PROJECT TEAM
A small group who care about Saskatchewan, and like to think BIG,
banded together for this unique project in support of STARS air ambulance in Saskatchewan.
A private/official unveiling of the car to donors will be scheduled for mid-year. This will provide the best opportunity for our supporters to see firsthand the amazing craftsmanship and countless hours dedicated to the Pegasus Mustang.
The STARS Pegasus Project Mustang will also be available for display at local events throughout the season, across Saskatchewan.
November 2-5, 2021 marks the SEMA show in Las Vegas, where Pegasus Project ambassador Kim Coates will unveil the car to the world, at the wildly popular Ford display stage. It will certainly draw the attention of automobile enthusiasts, as it showcases the impressive restoration and customization of an iconic automobile.
Then finally, the Pegasus Project Mustang will be featured as a charitable auction vehicle at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, January 2022. We look forward to the sale of this amazing car, with every dollar returning to Saskatchewan for STARS.
Stay tuned for updates as we move through the year toward this epic conclusion to the Pegasus Project.
