Ground will be broken Thursday morning for the 2015 St. Jude Dream Home. In the spring, someone will win the 3,500 square foot home being built in Malpas West, a new subdivision off of Basher Road in Biloxi.
Elliott Homes LLC is building the Dream Home. This is the second time builder Brandon Elliott has built a St. Jude Dream Home.
The 2015 St. Jude Dream Home is valued at $470,000 and will have four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a butler's pantry, wet bar and a two car garage.
The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest fundraising events for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital where cancer-stricken children receive care regardless of their family's ability to pay.
Tickets for this year's home will go on sale in early 2015. The tickets will cost $100 each. Look to wlox.com and WLOX News for updates on the Dream Home construction and for the kickoff of Dream Home ticket sales.
