A limited number of tickets are available and the past two giveaways have sold out early.

Early ticket buyers will be eligible to win several additional prize drawings. Tickets purchased by March 24 will be eligible to win a vacation getaway that includes a hotel stay and entertainment tickets in either San Francisco, New Orleans or Myrtle Beach, S.C. courtesy of WUSY US-101.

The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. It generates more than $290 million for the research and treatment of childhood cancer.

The proceeds from fundraisers like the Dream Home allow families to focus on their child’s treatment without having to worry about expenses. Families who receive care at St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child recover.

Local sponsors of the 2016 Dream Home include WRCB Channel 3, G.T. Issa Construction, WUSY US-101, Signature Brokers LLC, Chattanooga Times Free Press, Regions Bank, Cochran Furniture Co. and national sponsors Brizo, Shaw Floors and Trane.
