The semi-annual St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway offers people a chance to win a beautiful house while saving kids’ lives, and the 2016 Colorado Springs Event is almost upon us! For just $100, you can buy a raffle ticket to win the home, valued at $350,000, as well as many other prizes such as a vacation to Mexico, a couples getaway complete with spa services, a hot tub, gift certificates, and more, all while helping St. Jude to end childhood cancer.
Furniture Row and Denver Mattress are helping the cancer treatment and research fundraiser by fully furnishing the home, as well as donating the Open House Prize, a $10,000 shopping spree. The home is almost complete, and on Friday, St. Jude held a floor signing event, giving the opportunity for all of the giveaway’s trade partners and sponsors a chance to write their best wishes on the concrete before flooring is installed.
Kaylee, a Colorado Springs local, who fought cancer and won also attended the event. As a St. Jude patient for over a year, she bravely fought the disease and is looking forward to her long and beautiful life. As many of the hospital’s patients’ stories are, Kaylee’s journey is touching and inspirational.
You can find out more and buy your tickets now and have your chance to win the home or other prizes for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway 2016. Tours of the house will run from April 30th to June 5th on Saturdays from 9 am – 5 pm, and Sundays from noon – 5 pm.
