The St. Jude Dream Home giveaway is still several weeks away, but we are officially out of tickets.
So, now we want to say thank you to all of you who stepped up to help raise money for the families of St. Jude!
Your incredible generosity was again on display today as we broke some records.
We've never tried to sell off $8,000 tickets in our St. Jude Dream Home giveaway, before. But, you helped set a new record and raise $800,000 to ensure that families of St. Jude patients never see a bill.
"8,000 tickets we started with in January. And at the beginning of the day it was 650 and we sold out. So thank you very much Central Illinois for all your giving. $800,000 was raised for the kids of St. Jude and their families," exclaimed Mike Bowermaster with Bob Lindsay Honda.
Bob Lindsay also provided a Civic Hatchback that's up for grabs, and there are other prizes including a diamond necklace from Bremer Jewelry, and shopping sprees at Kroger and Carpet Weaver's Furniture Gallery. In fact, you can qualify for the furniture shopping spree worth $6,000 by visiting the Dream Home for open houses still being held on the weekends leading up to the drawing.
Again, tune in to 25 News on April 25th at 7 P.M for a live drawing.
