Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway Raises $949,100 For
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
The 2019 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house, built by sponsor De Young Properties was given away to Sharon and Leroy Spears of Fresno who were selected as the lucky winner of the 1,900 square foot home in the De Young EnVision community located in Clovis during the October 18 Giveaway on FOX26.
With overwhelming support by the community, who dug deep into their pockets and donated, the 2019 Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway successfully raised $949,100 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our community should be applauded for using their hard-earned dollars to support this important cause.
Since 2007, De Young Properties has been a sponsor of 13 St. Jude homes, helping to raise $12,577,645 to help the kids of St. Jude fight cancer and other life-threatening childhood diseases. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to St. Jude, which works around the clock to develop cures to save the lives of boys and girls, including children in the San Joaquin Valley.
“We strongly believe in our responsibility to help others, and our entire De Young team is grateful to our community’s continued support of our business – which is why we are passionate about giving back. In fact, we are even more passionate today than we were in 2007 when we first partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We are honored to be a sponsor of our 13th St. Jude Dream Home in this war against childhood cancer. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital positively affects the lives of families across the country, in addition to giving us the opportunity to change the life of a local family,” said Paula De Young of De Young Properties.
De Young Properties combines their contribution and efforts with the generous help of trade partners such as Sunlight Financial, Landscape Connection, G&G Construction Co., 84 Lumber, True Frame, Quality Plumbing, Ferguson of Fresno and PetersenDean Roofs4America who also donate their time, labor and resources to build this quality crafted home.
“We’d like to thank all of our business affiliates, De Young team members, other donors and volunteers for joining us in the mission to beat pediatric cancer; we are proud to work alongside each of you. We count ourselves fortunate to be able to help such an important cause which wouldn’t be possible without your dedication. Your commitment to the children of St. Jude is truly inspiring.”
Tickets to win the house were available to the public starting in August with all proceeds going to St. Jude. This year, 10,000 tickets were available and 9,491 tickets were reserved for the Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. In addition, thousands of visitors toured the home leading up to the ticket drawing.
The 2019 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house, located in De Young EnVision in Clovis, is one of the newest floorplans from De Young. The Residence 190 offers three bedrooms, two baths, a dining room and a 3 car oversized garage. In addition, the 2019 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway house is a Zero Energy home, which means the home is designed with the potential to produce as much clean energy as it consumes in a year*, providing the grand prize winner with increased indoor comfort and energy independence. Once an EnVision Zero Energy home is built, it is up to the energy use choices of each homeowner to achieve optimum results.
