A “Dream” Home in Benton Becomes Reality as Construction Nears Completion,

Open House for KTBS 3/St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway is July 6 - August 4

WHAT:           St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is hosting a free open house to showcase the 2013 KTBS 3/St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway built by Rodgers Homes & Construction, Inc. and estimated to be valued at $350,000. Located in Turtle Creek Estates in Benton, the single-family home is 2,721 square feet with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, outdoor kitchen and formal living room.  Just by touring the home, visitors can register free to win the Open House Prize: a $5,000 Room Makeover with design services, courtesy of Red Door Interiors.


The event presents an opportunity for guests to see the neighborhood, floor plan and custom design, and reserve a $100 ticket for the chance to win the KTBS 3/St. Jude Dream Home or other prizes, including dry cleaning for a year, $1,000 Target giftcard, Baja Fiberglass Spa and more!


Proceeds from ticket sales for the 2013 KTBS 3/St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway will help children battling cancer and other deadly diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for anything. St. Jude covers the cost of transportation, food, treatment and lodging. And, for every child treated at the hospital, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries.
