They say it’s better to give than to receive, but why not take a chance to do both? Ticket-holders for this year’s St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway have a one in 6,333 chance to win a gorgeous new home in the new Bristol Park development on Highway 65 and Division Street. Every cent of the $100 ticket is donated to the life-saving research of the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and helps ensure that no family ever receives a medical bill from St. Jude. On June 29, the winner is announced on the KSPR Giveaway Special from 68 p.m. Until then, those interested can tour the brand-new, beautifully staged house, valued at $375,000, every weekend May 24June 28. This includes Saturdays from 9 a.m.5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Those who tour the home can register for free to win a $10,000 shopping spree to Hometown Furniture just for stopping by. Built by MGM Properties on a generously donated lot, everything in the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home was donated, including upgraded BRIZO faucets and premium Shaw flooring throughout the home. The Springfield home is located at 3962 E. Brookdale Terrace.

A limited number of tickets are on sale now and will sell out quickly, so pick one up at Hy-Vee, by phone at 800-870-2980 or online at Make a difference this summer by donating to St. Jude, which needs nearly $2 million per day to open its doors to families in need and freely shares its research with the world. Who knows? Perhaps you’ll win the home of your dreams.
