A Dream Home in the making

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.
