Today was the big day for the Acadiana St. Jude Dream Home giveaway. Oh and what a beautiful home it is, built by the fine folks at McLain Homes.

Over the last few months we have been asking you to open up your hearts (and wallets) and buy a ticket to help St Jude Children's Research Hospital continue their life-saving work.

A huge thank you goes out to everyone who purchased a ticket or tickets to help to save the lives of the children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This year, through your generous giving, we raised a total of $1,107,348!

In addition to that beautiful home, many other prizes were given away. Below is the complete list of great prizes handed out as part of the Acadiana St Jude Dream Home giveaway.


The first place prize is the Acadiana St. Jude Dream Home house, valued at approximately $550,000, located in The Grand Pointe Subdivision in Lafayette.
