Tickets for the 2018 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway have officially sold out! Someone will win a beautiful home and help the families of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! For us, it's one of the best moments of the year! This time we went bigger than ever as 13,000 tickets were sold (in just 13 days!) to raise $1.3 million dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

Here's what the home, located in Weddington, has to offer: It's valued at $475,000 and boasts 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. The home is 2,900 square feet and you'll find custom cabinetry throughout. It is complete with marble countertops and designer interior molding by Metrie! Newton Custom Homes and Realty is once again behind the home's build. Crews broke ground on February 22, 2018, and are hard at work.

This year’s home has a super cool theme, too! Superheroes.

Jeff Newton and his team say that anyone who helps a kid fighting for his/her life is -- a Superhero. We totally agree!

The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is a 25-year tradition that is one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital nationwide.

St. Jude Children's Research HospitalSt. 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.

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 over 50 years ago.
