On Friday, May 3, 2019, sponsors and volunteers crowded at the Spring 2019 St. Jude Dream Home in Colorado Springs to officially celebrate its grand opening. This dream home is the sixth home to be part of the annual St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway in Colorado Springs. Each ticket sold will raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital dedicated to fighting childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Those who purchase tickets are eligible to win the home as well as a $10,000 furniture shopping spree at Furniture Row, $10,000 VISA gift card, 2019 Hot Spring Limelight Flash hot tub with a cover, and other amazing prizes. To date, the Colorado Springs community has raised more than four million dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the past five years.
The home, located in the beautiful neighborhood subdivision of Banning Lewis Ranch in Colorado Springs, has an estimated value of $525,000 and is 3,700 square feet. It has five bedrooms and four bathrooms, a completely finished basement, and a gourmet kitchen that includes granite countertops, a large island, butler’s pantry, and designer staggered cabinetry.
Overall, the construction of the home would not have been possible without the many sponsors and volunteers that worked hard on the project. The Spring 2019 Colorado Springs St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is sponsored by Covington Homes, KKTV 11 News, Epsilon Sigma Alpha, Banning Lewis Ranch, The Gazette, Colorado Homes & Lifestyles magazine, iHeartMedia, Furniture Row, Hanson HotSpring Spas, Community Banks of Colorado, loanDepot and national sponsors Brizo, Shaw Floors, Trane, and Bosch.
On the opening day, invitees, sponsors, and volunteers at the event got a chance to leave their permanent mark on the home they built by signing the floor with a message to the winner(s) of the house.
The St. Jude Dream Home is open to the public for tours on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. until Sunday, June 9. The winners of the home giveaway and other prizes will be announced live on KKTV 11 News on Friday, June 14.
