Zeta Rho-ESA included in groundbreaking for St. Jude Dream Home

Three members from Ruston’s Zeta Rho chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha assisted in groundbreaking activities for the 20th annual Monroe St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.

Local ESA members participating were Sallie Rose Hollis, president; Nancy Darland, philanthropic chair; and Bre Brown, special projects co-chair. The ESA chapter serves as one of the main volunteer groups for the project.

Additionally, Ruston’s Big Z Country 107.5 is a key sponsor.

Tickets to win the house, being built by BRACO Construction in Frenchmen’s Bend subdivision, will be available at $100 each starting in January. Last year’s ticket sales raised more than $750,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The four-bedroom, three-bath home will feature an open floor plan of approximately 2,600 square feet. To learn more about the giveaway or be involved as a sponsor, visit dreamhome.org.

A leading children’s hospital, St. Jude treats the toughest childhood cancers and pediatric diseases. Treatments developed at the Memphis, Tennessee, facility have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago.

St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved there means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food because those associated with the hospital believe that all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
