St. Jude's Dream Home breaks ground for 13th year

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- It was more of a "snow-breaking" than a "ground-breaking" for the St. Jude Dream Home on Friday, but nonetheless, the 13th year for the event is underway.

St. Jude's will give one lucky winner a new home for the cost of a $100 raffle ticket, and the children's hospital says those small donations add up over time.

"The Bowling Green community, through the campaign, has raised over six and a half million dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital," says Zack Middleton of St. Jude's, "and a lot of people don't know the daily operating costs of the hospital is two point four million dollars. So you can imagine how far six and a half million dollars goes."

Tickets go on sale May 18 and the raffle will be on August 19.
