TOWNSHIP OF SYLVANIA, Sylvania — We're so excited to once again be a part of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway campaign, and this year the event is going to be bigger and better than ever - with your help. 

Last year, you helped us raise $1 MILLION for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to ensure the hospital started by Toledo's own Danny Thomas continues to give world-class care to children with cancer at no cost to their families.

The groundbreaking for the 2020 St. Jude Dream Home was Wednesday morning. This year, the house is located in Sylvania Township in the new Quarry Ridge subdivision and it is once again being constructed by Mike White and Buckeye Real Estate Group. 

"I first-hand got to see some of the great things they do down in Memphis for the children, and you can't turn your back on that. Remarkable work when the families are really in a bad situation with their children. So happy to help, happy to be part of this and it is the right thing to do," White said Wednesday.

It features four bedrooms, a first-floor laundry, a two-story great room, a sunroom, spacious kitchen with large island, wet bar, garage storage space area, two-story entryway, custom built lockers, and nearly 2,800 square feet of living space!

"Because children who are diagnosed with cancer and have to be treated at Saint Jude they go there during the darkest point of their life and they walk the doors and we are a beacon of hope because no family ever has to pay for treatment travel food or lodging when they are at St. Jude," said Abby Samuels of St Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Tickets can be reserved starting May 14 for $100 each. The giveaway will be Aug. 13, live on WTOL 11 and FOX36. The house will be open to the public beginning with the Grand Opening on July 18 and will occur every weekend through Aug. 9.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. 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. 

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
