On Friday, October 1st, Home for the Holidays kicked off their 2021 campaign as representatives from the Acadian Home Builders Association and the four charities that will benefit from this year's raffle were featured on the KPEL airwaves on Acadiana's Morning News and OFFSIDES.

Over $2.3 Million has been distributed to local charities since 2005.

This Year's Brand New Home

2021 marks the 17th year that Home for the Holidays has been raffling off homes while raising money for local charities in Lafayette. This year's home is valued at $565,000.00 featuring 2,592 square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and lots of high-end amenities. It's located at 102 Winthorpe Row in the Brookshire South Subdivision in Lafayette off Robley Drive. The home was built by Heritage Home Builders and designed by architect Jarod Hebert.

The home will be raffled away and a winner will be announced on the 6:00 p.m. news on KATC-TV 3 on December 8, 2021.

Joni Hamilton was announced as the winner on October 4th. Her husband, Dave, is an avid listener of KPEL and calls in often (as well as substitute guest hosts from time to time) on OFFSIDES.

We buy tickets every year - always in my wife's name because she deserves it more than I do," said Dave as he called in to OFFSIDES following the announcement. "We drove by the home the other day and it's a beautiful home! If you win, you win a great prize but the biggest prize that we get is every single penny that is raised stays right here in the Acadiana area. That is important to me."
