BOISE -- The community has stepped up in a big way to support children fighting cancer.
Tickets for the 13th annual Boise St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway sold out Friday evening. That's about seven weeks before the drawing, and nearly $1 million was raised.
The 2018 Dream Home is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 2,500 square ft. house, with an estimated value of $460,000. It's located in the Vicenza at BridgeTower West subdivision in Meridian, ID and features an open great room with indoor/outdoor fireplace leading to covered patio; a stunning music room with floor-to-ceiling library; and a spacious 3-car garage with epoxy flooring.
KTVB is a proud sponsor of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway which benefits the lifesaving work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, one of the world's premier pediatric cancer research centers.
Berkeley Building Company has once again generously donated time and materials to construct the home.
The Dream Home grand prize winner will be drawn on Sunday, June 17, but that's not the only prize.
Register for free when you tour the house for a chance to win a $10,000 shopping spree at Mor Furniture For Less.

ABOUT ST. JUDE
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
St. Jude has the world's best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since they opened more than 50 years ago.
St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.
St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
