Thank you Wichita and Kansas
8,500 2017 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway tickets. 2,000 more than 2016. We wouldn’t be honest if we didn’t admit we were all a bit anxious as to how this onsale would go.
The end result? We were ecstatic and humbled by the generosity and support from Wichita and Kansas. Again.
At 5 a.m., Wednesday, March 1, the 2017 Wichita St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway tickets became available to the public.Within two hours, 2,000 tickets were already reserved and the phone lines were full.
Five days was all it took for the tickets to run out, beating last year by one day. And $850,000 was raised in support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In a busy world right now, filled with chaos, depression, anxiety and conflict, it’s invigorating to watch a community come together to help lighten the load for children who are fighting for their lives. Yes, we’re building a house together as a community and raising funds to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. But it’s so much more than that. We are showing these families they aren’t facing their battles alone. Entire communities and states are putting aside differences and reserving tickets, hoping not only to possibly win amazing homes and fantastic prices, but also knowing even if they don’t hold the lucky ticket, they are still playing a role in finding cures to end childhood cancer.
So thank you again, Wichita and Kansas. We couldn’t be more proud of our state and city.
And we look forward to meeting each of you as you tour the home during during the Open House Weekends.
