Sold out! All tickets for St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway are claimed
The 26,000 tickets were sold to raise a record $2.6 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - All 26,000 tickets have been sold to win this year’s Charlotte St. Jude Dream Home!
This year’s home is near downtown Monroe, North Carolina, and is being built again by Jeff Newton and his team at Newton Custom Homes and Realty.
Those 26,000 tickets raised a record $2.6 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Last year, WBTV viewers helped set a record by selling out all of the 22,500 available tickets in just nine days.
The last tickets were sold just before 10:30 a.m. Friday, about 28 hours after they first went on sale.
The home on Arden Drive will be loaded with custom features and is just under 2,800 square feet. It includes three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths, and unique touches like a keeping room off the kitchen and a sitting room off the main bedroom.
Those who entered to win the home reserved a $100 ticket. They are also entered to win several other great prizes.
For the first time ever, purchasing a ticket on the first day they are available gets you entered to win the First Day prize! That prize is a $2,500 gift card to Publix.

No child treated at St. Jude or their family ever has to pay for treatment, travel, housing, or food. This year’s ticket sales will help cover treatment for six St. Jude patients. The treatments for pediatric cancer can last up to three years or more and cost on average $425,000, not including housing, travel, and food.
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is currently working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and hospital leaders say they won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
