KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Dreams can come true; at least for one lucky Kansas City raffle winner they will.
The Saint Jude's Dream Home Giveaway drawing will take place June 24. The prize? A five-bedroom, five-bathroom home valued at $600,000 and all for the price of a hundred dollar raffle ticket.
All of the money raised will help the children of Saint Jude's and the hospital find cures for childhood cancer.
Grant Johnson, who has a tumor in his brain and spine, will be one of St. Jude's patients who benefit from the fundraiser. Grant’s father, Mike Johnson, is grateful for the hospital’s efforts.
"Everyone is certainly sensitive to these kids plight,” Johnson said. “Just everyone is just so compassionate it's just wonderful."
The dream home opened for public viewing Wednesday. Today is the last day to purchase raffle tickets. The tickets are available on-site, online or through the 1-800 number.
The winner of the home and 18 other prizes will be announced Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon on your 41 Action News station and KSHB.com.
