For the last three years, Buckeye Real Estate Group of Toledo has been chosen to build the St Jude Dream Home. By coordinating efforts with local partners and suppliers, Buckeye builds a home at zero cost for the raffle. With 12,500 tickets sold at $100 each, the raffle is projected to raise $1,250,000 in proceeds that will go directly to the St Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN help defeat childhood cancer.
World-class care to children with cancer at no cost to their families.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of St. Jude's founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
When St. Jude opened in February of 1962, 1 in 5 children would survive cancer. Today, that survival rate is 4 in 5 - in no small part due to generous donations to St. Jude.
Helping Create a Zero Cost Dream Home
Wimsatt is honored to have the privilege of supplying the roofing and siding for the 2020 St Jude Dream Home, a 2,800 sqft home that will be built in the new Quarry Ridge subdivision in Sylvania Township. On Wednesday, Feb 6, Mike White from Buckeye broke ground on the home, and Jamie & Matt from our Toledo location were honored to take part in the ceremony. Those interested in taking part in the raffle can reserve tickets starting May 14th.
