Tickets for the 2019 St. Jude Dream Home are available for purchase starting today.
“We are so excited to kick off the 2019 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway,” said Lydia Chapman, Development Representative for ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. “One lucky person who snags a ticket will win a gorgeous house built by Mark Boling Construction, valued at an estimated $485,000. Tickets sold out extremely early last year, so people shouldn’t wait to reserve theirs!”
This year, Mark Boling Construction is building a ranch-style home in the Lauren’s Bay Estates area, which is estimated at 3,600 square feet and features 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, an ample finished basement with a built-in bar, and a cozy, covered porch area with a fireplace. The public will be able to walk through the Dream Home between May 18, 2019 – June 9, 2019, and one winner will be selected to win the house on Thursday, June 13, 2019.
Attendees can enter to win the soon to be constructed house and other high-end prizes by reserving a $100 raffle ticket. Only a limited amount of tickets will be available and there will be extra incentives for those who reserve their tickets early.
“As an additional incentive, everyone who reserves their ticket by April 3 will also be entered to win the Tickets on Sale prize, a $2,500 shopping spree of your choice, courtesy of Keller Williams Realty One Legacy Partners,” said Chapman.
The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude nationwide and has raised more than $400 million for the hospital since 1991. All funds raised through the program will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
