The 2023 Lake Charles St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway begins in a couple of weeks! It seems as if we just gave the last one away, and we did. Well, last year, on December 8, 2022. Carl Krielow and his wife were the proud winners of the gorgeous 3,400 square-foot 2022 Lake Charles St. Jude Dream House. Talk about making dreams come true!

The fabulous two-story home had an estimated value of $600K. But only cost the Krielow family a $200 donation (2 Dream Home raffle tickets) to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital! The couple was shocked when they learned the stunning Lake Charles St. Jude Dream House was all theirs.

This can be you! The beauty of it all is the Dream Home Giveaway is a benefit to raise money to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital continue to save the lives of children with catastrophic diseases. All the raffle ticket proceeds go towards allowing this special hospital to continue its groundbreaking research and treatments FREE OF CHARGE!


Tickets sold out in 29 hours last year and raised $1.2 million for the hospital, costing roughly $2 billion annually. So, let's raise some money to help the kids at St. Jude! Raffle tickets for the 2023 Lake Charles St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway go on sale on June 6 at 6 am for $100 each.
