Congratulations to all winners and thanks to all who entered and helped in the fight against cancer on behalf of children everywhere.

The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is a 22-year tradition that is now one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital nationwide.

This is the inaugural campaign in Charlotte. 

St. Jude shares their research and treatment freely with doctors and hospitals all around the world. St. Jude may not be in our backyard but their treatments are.

No family ever receives a bill from St. Jude, not for treatment, travel, transportation or food.

The St. Jude Dream Home is one of St. Jude's largest fundraisers. This campaign alone will raise $800,000 for the kids of St. Jude.

Sponsors of the program include WBTV, Kingswood Custom Homes, Inc., WKKT, Chairman Nick Simonette, national sponsors Brizo and Shaw Floors, among others.

St. Jude Children's Research HospitalTo date, more than 300 homes have been given away and the program has raised more than $240 million for St. Jude.

The daily operating cost for the research hospital is $1.9 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.

Because a majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, like you, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most - saving kids regardless of their financial situation.

St. Jude is working to drive survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% in the next decade.  They won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened 50 years ago.
