St. Jude Dream Home Open House Is Ongoing

Wednesday, May 21, 2014
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will host an open house showcasing the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway in Chattanooga. The single family home built by G.T. Issa Construction is estimated to be valued at $500,000. Located in The Canyons at Falling Water at 6233 Deep Canyon Road, Hixson, Tn 37343, the 3,900-square-foot home features four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and is beautifully staged by Smart Furniture.
 
After visiting the new home’s neighborhood and walking the floor plan to see its custom design, guests may reserve a $100 ticket for the chance to win the dream home or 14 other prizes. Guests may also register FREE at any Open House to win groceries for a year at Publix, valued at $5,000 courtesy of the Miller Family Foundation.
 
Proceeds from ticket sales for the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway will help St. Jude Children’s Research hospital continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
 
This year’s sponsors include WRCB Channel 3, G.T. Issa Construction, WUSY US101 Luttrell Development Company, Chattanooga Times Free Press, Geoff Ramsey of Remax Properties, among others, and national sponsors, Brizo, Shaw Floors and Trane.
 

The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway has become one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital nationwide. This is the 23rd anniversary of the program and the eighth house to be built in this market.

To date, 340 houses have been awarded and the program has raised more than $270 million for St. Jude. Because a majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors through programs like this one, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.

The house will be open for tours from 12-5 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday through June 15.
