“Tickets are selling like hot cakes for this year’s St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway,” said Betty Jolly, ticket coordinator for the St. Jude Dream Home. “Less than 3,000 tickets remain, and they are going fast with the giveaway right around the corner on June 24.”
Final open houses are this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, from 12–5 p.m. The St. Jude Dream Home is in the Georgetown Bay subdivision in Ooltewah. Everyone who visits the house has the opportunity to buy a $100 ticket to win the St. Jude Dream Home house while they last, but also to register free to win a $5,000 shopping spree at Ashley Furniture HomeStore.
“This is a separate drawing, open only to those who come out to see the St. Jude house,” said Linda Dagnan, open house coordinator. “No purchase is necessary to win the shopping spree -- we just want everyone to come see this beautiful home that has been built with so much talent and love.”
This weekend only, just for touring the house the public can also register free to win a flat screen TV for Dad! We also have a very special appearance by recording artist Lauren Alaina on Saturday, at 4 p.m. for a meet and greet, thanks to WUSY US-101.
Most of the materials and labor to build the house have been donated. Pratt Homebuilders coordinated construction of the St. Jude Dream Home estimated to value $300,000 and to be raffled for the benefit of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on WRCB Channel 3 at noon on Sunday, June 24. One in 500 will win a prize valued at $1,000 or more including a two night stay in the penthouse suite at the Holiday Inn Resort in Panama City Beach, FL as well as a $1,000 Visa gift card, courtesy of AirSystems Unlimited.
