BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Construction for the 2016 St. Jude Dream Home in Biloxi is underway. St. Jude leaders and Elliott Homes broke ground Monday morning on the 3,400-square-foot, five-bedroom and three-bathroom home being built on two lots in Malpass West. That's a new subdivision off Cedar Lake Road.
Tickets for the home will go on sale around Jan. 19, 2016. The drawing for the home will take place in April 2016. All the money raised goes toward helping children battle cancer.
"It is important that we continue the Dream Home Program on the Coast to raise funds, because it takes more than $2.1 million a day to run St. Jude Children's Research Hospital," said Kelsey LeBlanc, St. Jude Children's Hospital Regional Development Representative I, Gulf Coast Region. "That money allows children and their families to not have to worry about their medical costs nor their stay at St. Jude."
