MERIDIAN, Idaho — Raffle tickets for the 2020 St. Jude Dream Home sold out in just four hours.
All 13,777 tickets were snatched up by 9:03 a.m. the day they went on sale, raising more than $1.3 million for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
This year's Dream Home is a newly-constructed 2,500 square-foot single-level home in the Bridgetower West neighborhood in Meridian. It's estimated value is $549,900.
We will have a separate story with the winners published as soon as the spellings of the winners' names are made available.
"The home this year, it's really exciting," said Berkeley Building Company President Joe Atalla. “Every year everybody asks, 'we want to see a secret room.' So, this year we've brought the secret room back and we've got some other exciting surprises too."
This is the seventh consecutive year that Berkeley Building Company has constructed the St. Jude Dream Home.
Tickets sold out in just four days last year. Each ticket cost $100.
