Tickets on sale for the 2021 St. Jude Dream Home
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Tickets are on sale for the 2021 St. Jude Dream Home. This year’s house is being built by Darrel Sweets of Sweets Design Build in McCoy Place subdivision off of Three Springs Road.
This year we’re only selling 7,000 tickets and we’re coming off of the fastest sellout in Bowling Green’s history.
“You can’t help but get on board when you see the mission that they accomplished, helping kids with catastrophic cancer and other diseases and who can’t get behind that,” said Darrel Sweets of Sweets Design Build.
“I mean you are entering a place where children are fighting some of the toughest battles they’re ever going to face in their lives and that’s the fight against cancer and you just think, “Wow, this place is going to be so depressing it’s going to be so sad” and it’s the opposite; it’s genuinely the opposite. I mean, they literally have skies with beautiful clouds and stuff painted on the ceilings for these patients where they’re being treated. I mean, everywhere you look is hope everywhere,” said Preston Green of WBVR, “The Beaver” 96.7.
If you get your ticket by May 16 at midnight you’ll be eligible to win our Tickets on Sale prize: a Spartan zero turn mower courtesy of Legacy Outdoor Power Equipment. You’ll also be entered to win a year of gas and groceries valued at $4,800 dollars courtesy of Houchens Industries, a $10,000 dollar shopping spree courtesy of Bowling Green Home Furnishings and, of course, the 2021 St. Jude Dream Home!
“So after the past three years we’ve had record sellouts and so we thought we’d just thought it’s a great way to partner and give back to the community and get involved. Let’s sell out again!” exclaimed Brandon Gabbard of Legacy Outdoor Power Equipment.
“Involvement is so important, we try to get involved in as many ways as we can in the community; you see us up on the hill. St. Jude is just one of the many ways that we can reach out to children and physicians,” said Laura Iverson with Bowling Green Home Furnishings.
“Houchens is a local based company. We started in Glasgow, KY and it’s super important that we give back to the community that helped us become to where we are now,” said Bailey Shaluta with Houchens Industries.
