CSU president buys first St. Jude Dream Home ticket

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

You can now reserve a ticket for your chance to win a St. Jude Dream Home valued at more than $360,000.

The first ticket was sold Wednesday morning to Columbus State University President Tim Mescon, who says he is proud to be a part of this project.

All proceeds raised by ticket sales goes to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee to help children fight cancer.

Mescon explains even if his $100 ticket doesn't buy him a new home, he will still be a winner. "I think this is a great three-month sprint. It's important for the community, it's important for St. Jude, and the winners are children. So anything we can do to help that effort.  If I won anything it would be great, but the main thing is we're all winners because of the support for St. Jude."

WTVM partnered with St. Jude and tickets can be purchased at any Regions Bank Location, Action Building and Truck Style location and at the St. Jude Dream Home open house.

You can also 1-800-383-9844 to reserve a ticket.

If you reserve your ticket by March 1, 2013, you will be eligible to win FREE groceries for a year, a $2500 value, courtesy Piggly Wiggly. 

Free tours inside the dream home will be available March 9 - April 14 on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m.

This year's giveaway will be televised on WTVM on Sunday, April 21, 2013.
