St. Jude Dream Home framed in just 25 hours
ARLINGTON, Tenn. (WMC) - The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway campaign celebrates 25 years in Memphis this year, and in honor of that milestone, builders framed the entire 3,300-square-foot home in just 25 hours!
Partners with Southern Serenity Homes, Maximus Building Supply and Eagle’s Nest Construction worked with dozens of workers over the past three days to frame the three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath Dream Home in record time.
For Richard Cooper, CEO of Maximus Building Supply, taking part in the build is personal.
“If you notice on the house wrap, it’s got our logo. It’s got the St. Jude logo and it’s got the Team Carson Elizabeth logo and that represents one of my business partner’s daughters who went through the halls of St. Jude and unfortunately, she was one of the 20% that didn’t make it,” Cooper said.
The annual build is a labor of love for Pedro Aguilar and his son Sebastian of Eagle’s Nest Construction and Residential Framing.
A labor of love for Pedro Aguilar and his son Sebastian, who are proud to be a part of this year’s build.
“It feels really good because I can introduce him to the need to be doing things like this for people that really need it - like the kids of St. Jude,” said Aguilar.
The 2024 St. Jude Dream Home will be raffled off next summer.
The money raised from ticket sales goes to finding cures and saving lives at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
More than $670M has been raised for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since the start of the annual Dream Home Giveaway campaign.
Tickets for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway will be available in March and a winner will be announced in June.
