De Young Properties Thanks Community For Once Again Raising Over $1 Million For 2014 St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital!

With overwhelming support by the community who dug deep and donated, the 2014 Central Valley St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway raised $1,075,100 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Built by major donor De Young Properties, the home was given away to Brian and Traci Martin of Clovis who were selected as the lucky winners of the new 3,100 sq. ft. home on an expansive 10,485 sq. ft. homesite in the De Young CountrySide community during the November 9th live television broadcast on KMPH FOX 26.

De Young Properties is honored to have built and donated eight St. Jude Dream Homes, helping to raise $7,608,345 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.

De Young Properties combines their contribution and efforts with the generous help of our trade partners who donate their time, labor and resources to build this De Young EnergySmart home with the goal of raising money for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  Special thanks to every trade partner who joined De Young to donate and support this important cause!

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 feel honored to be able to help such an important cause. I am inspired each year when our community comes together to show their support for St. Jude and we are appreciative of everyone who contributed their hard-earned dollars to purchase a ticket.

This year, there was a tremendous amount of interest in the St. Jude Dream Home® because it offered five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a formal dining room. The winner’s dreams came true with the home’s long list of special features, including a beautiful Italianate elevation with stone accents, a floor-to-ceiling tile fireplace, Granite Mountain durable quartz counters, stainless steel General Electric appliances with gas cook top and refrigerator. In addition, the home offers eco-friendly and elegant dual Brizo SmartTouch premium faucets, an Energy Star-rated Rinnai tankless water heater, premium-grade hardwood and 18” tile floors by Shaw Floors,spacious 11’ ceilings and 8’ doors, professional front and back yard landscaping, Energy Star approved Eagle Cool Roof tiles, a SolarCity 3kW Solar Power System with a 20-year pre-paid lease and beautiful wall mural by professional artist Sandee Cohrs.
