Messages of love left on St. Jude Dream Home's floor

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - If you win the 2017 Mississippi Gulf Coast St. Jude Dream Home, you will have messages of love, blessings, and thanks written on the concrete under the flooring in the living room. Tuesday supporters of the Dream Home came together to celebrate and mark this stage of the construction of the house just off the beach in Gulfport.

Sapphire Homes is building this year's St. Jude Dream home, valued at $430,000. It's located in the Oak Shadows neighborhood. The 2,600-square-foot home features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a den and formal living room.

You can purchase your Dream Home tickets by calling 1-800-206-2263. Dream Home tickets are $100 each. You might win a home; you will help children and their families battling cancer.

For 26 years, the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway has become one of the largest fundraisers for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital nationwide. This is the 11th anniversary of the program launch on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

This year's Dream Home Drawing takes place live on WLOX ABC at 3pm April 9.
