Organizers kick off St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway
This year’s home will be raffled off on KBTX on June 3.
BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -For the third year in a row, a home benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is being built in Brazos County. Unlike years before, this home will be raffled off as part of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway on KBTX.
Beginning April 1, 7,000 tickets will go up for sale at $100 apiece, roughly the cost of 2 platelet count tests at the hospital or 6 meals for a St. Jude family. The project’s goal is to raise $700,000 that will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Ranger Home Builders is spearheading the project but has already received donations from the community including the lot the house will sit on.
“Seeing the community come together to make the build happen is probably some of the most joyous parts of the build but, this year such a fun twist to see someone just actually get to win the home,” said Tyan Magruder with Ranger Home Builders. “They could be a first-time home buyer or someone that’s looking to invest in College Station, it’s just a fun little twist and it’s all for the benefit of St. Jude.”
The home, located in Bryan’s Rudder Pointe neighborhood, is about 1,500 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Its estimated value is around $235,000.
The home is located at 3181 Normandy Way in Bryan. Virtual tours will start May 29 and run through June 3.
Raffle entrants who buy tickets early may also be entered to win a year of groceries valued at $10,000 and a $10,000 VISA Gift Card.
