St. Jude Dream Home ticket sales begin Feb. 22 

It’s time to dream again – to dream of winning a prize in the area St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, that is. And also to dream of helping the St. Jude kids, thus fulfilling the vision of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital founder Danny Thomas, whose vision was: “No child should die in the dawn of life.”   

Tickets for the 20th annual Monroe St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway will go on sale Feb. 22 and, as with the local St. Jude Radiothon, both radio station Z107.5 and the Zeta Rho chapter of the service group Epsilon Sigma Alpha are among key players with the project. 

Z107.5 is the official radio sponsor for the Dream Home, and Zeta Rho-ESA serves as the main volunteer group. 

BRACO Construction of Rayville is building the four-bedroom, three-bath, 2,600-square-foot home in Frenchman’s Bend subdivision. Tickets for a chance to win the $400,000 house will be sold for $100. The Bonus Prize to be given away May 6 is a 2022 Chevy Trailblazer donated by Legacy of Farmerville.  

ESA’s Dream Home chair, Beth Fife, said that in previous Monroe campaigns 7,500 tickets were available, but this year the number is being increased to 8,000. She encouraged people interested in purchasing tickets to buy early because “for as long as I can remember, tickets have sold out.” 

“That’s a testament to the dedication that people in North Louisiana feel for St. Jude,” Fife said. 

Earlier purchases also mean that buyers are eligible for more prizes.  

“But we know that for many people it’s not about prizes,” Fife said. “It would be nice to win – no doubt – but in the end, it’s really about helping the children of St. Jude.” 

More than 800 active patients from Louisiana are currently being treated by St. Jude, and no family ever receives a bill from the hospital. “This is why such projects as the Dream Home are essential to the hospital’s mission,” Fife said. 

Among Zeta Rho-ESA’s duties for the Dream Home will be picking up mail from the Monroe post office, sorting and processing tickets in the project’s Monroe office and coordinating the Open House.
