St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Tickets On Sale | News
There's a house in Warner Robins that costs only $100. All you have to do is win the raffle and tickets go on sale today.
The $100 raffle tickets are for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway and a chance to win 12 other prizes.
It's a project that hits home for Erskine and Candi who brought their son to St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, to be treated for a type of brain cancer.
"They do it lovingly and kindly, and with full respect," says Erskine.
"There's no other place where you can get care for your children. They really help support the entire family through the process," adds Candi.
St. Jude Representative Ellison White says she anticipates a sellout this year. There are 6,500 tickets up for grabs.
75% of funding for St. Jude comes from public donations including projects like the Dream Home.
"It's absolutely vital. It costs us $1.8 million every day to run the hospital and this kind of money is absolutely crucial to keep our doors open," says White.
The dream house is valued at $350,000 and is located in Savannah Square in Warner Robins.
"This house is filled with love. Instantly when you move into that house, It's good karma for the rest of your life, I believe," says Eskine.
13WMAZ will host a St. Jude sell-a-thon on Tuesday February 5th where you can call in to buy tickets.
Tickets are also available at these locations:
Any MidSouth Community Federal Credit Union, Southern Floors & Tile in Bonaire, across from the post office, and Ashley Furniture HomeStore in Macon.
You can watch the drawing live Sunday, April 28th on 13WMAZ.
