About This House Not just another pretty home, the 2019 Wichita St Jude Dream Home is much more than that. With the help of so many in the construction industry, this home was primarily built with donated labor and materials. Earlier this year, KSN 3 helped sell 12,000 tickets for $100/ticket. If you were one of the lucky ones that was able to purchase a ticket, you helped raise $1.2 million for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. This home represents hope, love and progress towards the dream Danny Thomas had back in 1962 when St Jude first opened its doors. That dream was that "no child should die in the dawn of life." Since then, St Jude has made incredible strides in childhood cancer research. They have helped improve the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80%.
