Builders break ground on new St. Jude Dream Home in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Reid Homes Inc., KSPR 33 and St. Jude broke ground Thursday on new St. Jude Dream Home in Springfield.

This year's home is in the Old Ivy subdivision in southeast Springfield. Again, St. Jude is only selling a limited amount of tickets beginning in April. The ticket costs $100.

The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude nationwide and has raised more than $350 million. All funds raised through the program will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
