EDITORIAL: Dream Home raises more than $500K for St. Jude

EDITORIAL:  We have wrapped up the 2012 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. More than 5,000 tickets were sold, bringing in a grand total of $551,367 to help the kids at St. Jude Research Hospital.

I want to congratulate our staff for a great campaign and for a great broadcast of the giveaway. I also want to thank all of you who bought a ticket to support this terrific cause and a special thanks to all the sponsors who made the giveaway possible.

Dave Ericksen and Gray Hawk Homes provided the home and Jay Toyota provided the Toyota Camry, and there were many, many other great sponsors.

In the end it is all about the kids and the wonderful service St. Jude provides to kids and their families free of charge.

This was the 11th year for the St Jude Dream home in Columbus and you have helped raise over $6 million.

Thanks for your past support and we look forward to raising even more in our 12th year of Dream Home.
