Free Tours of the St Jude Dream Home

This is the final weekend for free public tours of the beautiful St. Jude Dream Home built by Southern Land Company in Westhaven. Valued at approximately $650,000, this four bedroom three and a half bath home could be yours for only $100. With more than 11,000 tickets sold, time is running out to get your ticket. The campaign sold out a week early last year so there’s no better time than the present to purchase your ticket. All winners of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway will be drawn live on FOX 17 on Sunday, June 22nd at 6pm.

The St. Jude Dream Home will be open this Saturday from 9am – 5pm and Sunday from noon – 5pm.  Everyone visiting the home can not only reserve their $100 ticket, but can also register FREE to win a $5,000 shopping spree at American Signature Furniture.

In addition, organizers have come up with another great prize that will be given to one lucky person who tours the home over Father’s Day weekend.

A gas grill, valued at almost $1,000, will be given away to one lucky person who comes to tour the St. Jude Dream Home over Father’s Day weekend.
