2012 St Jude Dream Home

De Young Properties Helps To Successfully Raise $1,004,020 with St. Jude Dream Home®!

De Young Properties has served as the proud builder and major donor of the Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 raising $5.4 million to date to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Whether raising funds for children, building a home for a local hero or supporting local schools, non-profits and community groups, De Young gives dreams and hope to our community.

The 2012 Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home®, built by major donor De Young Properties, was given away to Brenda Lincoln of Fresno who was selected as the lucky winner of the new 2,064 sq. ft. home in the De Young Chestnut Grove community during the November 11th live television broadcast on KMPH FOX 26.

This year’s event sold all available tickets and successfully raised $1,004,020 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Over the last six years, De Young Properties has been a major donor and builder of six St. Jude Dream Homes, helping to raise $5,480,045 to help the kids of St. Jude fight cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. One hundred percent of the proceeds were donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which works around the clock to develop cures to save the lives of boys and girls, including children in the San Joaquin Valley. “There is nothing more heart-wrenching than sick children and the opportunity that St. Jude gives these kids is incredible. I am happy to be able to donate to this great cause,” said Brenda Lincoln, winner of the 2012 St. Jude Dream Home®.

De Young Properties is deeply rooted in the San Joaquin Valley and gives their time and resources to the community whenever possible. “Our De Young team believes in our responsibility to help others and we are appreciative of everyone who contributed their hard-earned dollars to purchase a ticket. We feel privileged to be able to help such an important cause. In addition, we would like to thank our trade partners who donate their time, labor and resources to build a quality crafted home,” said Ashley De Young of De Young Properties. “I am inspired each year when our community comes together to show their support for St. Jude.”

The St. Jude Dream Home® is designed to be a Net Zero EnergySmart™ home. The combination of the state-of-the-art De Young EnergySmart™ home with the power of solar provided by Solar Universe is designed to reduce annual electricity cost to zero. In addition, the EnergySmart™ home is also GreenPoint Rated, Energy Star certified and built to the tough California Advanced Homes Program Tier 2 standards for assurance that it is healthier to live in and saves Lincoln and her family money on their electricity bill. “I’m environmentally minded and energy conscience so the Net Zero EnergySmart features of this De Young home are very important to me. The possibility of no electric usage bills is exciting,” said Lincoln.

This year we experienced a tremendous amount of interest in the St. Jude Dream Home® because it is located in the prime northeast Fresno community of De Young Chestnut Grove and is designed to be a De Young Net Zero EnergySmart™ home. The home is part of the award-winning Clovis school district and offers four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two car garage. The winner’s dreams will come true with the home’s long list of special features, including an elegant Provence elevation, a gourmet kitchen with granite kitchen counters and stainless steel General Electric appliances with gas cook top and refrigerator. In addition, the home offers eco-friendly and elegant Brizo premium faucets, premium-grade hardwood and tile floors by Shaw Floors, spacious 10’ ceilings and 8’ doors, professional front and back yard landscaping, energy efficient Eagle Brand cool roof tiles, two clean-air gas fireplaces, Kitchen Craft premium maple wood cabinetry and a complete security alarm system.
