Dreaming of a home

I had the chance to visit the St. Jude Dream Home today in Perrysburg. The $350,000 home is the grand prize in a raffle June 8th on NBC24.

Plenty of information is available elsewhere on our website. But I wanted to share my impressions of the home and why it's well worth your while to consider buying a ticket for the drawing.

First of all, you've got a pretty good chance of winning. Much better than most games of chance. Even if you don't win the home itself, you could win one of the other prizes. We've hosted the Dream Home giveaway for three years now, and every year the excitement grows.

This is the biggest and most luxurious home to be given away so far. It has beautiful hardwood floors, an elegant fireplace, and towering ceilings in the great room. A number of NBC24 employees have bemoaned the fact that we are not eligible to enter the drawing. But practically all of our viewers can, so get your ticket online or at one of the local Meijer stores.

Good luck, and I sincerely hope you are the winner.
