BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The winner of the 2016 St. Jude Dream Home describes her brand new house as "perfect."
Carolyn Brown and her family toured the home in the Malpass West subdivision in Biloxi on Wednesday. Brown had just moved from Kentucky to the Mississippi Coast in January. She was renting a home in Gulfport while she searched for a permanent place to live.
When Brown toured the house, she fell in love with it and bought three tickets.
"I bought the tickets just knowing it was for a good cause," said Brown. "I didn't buy them with any expectations that I would ever win the house. But wow, I'm just, it's going to take a while for it to sink in."
Brown doesn't know yet when she will move into the home. She plans to live there with her daughter and granddaughter.
