It’s All for the Kids!

De Young Properties has dedicated this year’s campaign to the inspiring children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. One hundred percent of the proceeds of the giveaway are donated to St. Jude. Serving as major donor and builder of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway for the past 15 years, De Young Properties has successfully raised over $14.5 million for the hospital to date. A limited number of tickets will be available in the hopes of raising more than $1,000,000 to benefit 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.

“We’d like to thank all of our trade partners, De Young team members, business affiliates and volunteers for helping us with another Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home,” said Paula De Young. “As a local homebuilder, we believe it is our responsibility to give back. Now in our sixteenth year of building St. Jude Dream Home houses, we are honored and humbled that our community has shown tremendous support for our business and this important cause year over year, helping us raise millions for St. Jude. Every dollar raised for this incredible research hospital helps contribute to life saving research for children both in the Central Valley and around the world.”
