What was only a sparse plot of land a few weeks ago is now a bustling construction site as the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway project comes alive.

KENS 5 has joined with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to offer the local community a chance to win this half-million dollar Stadler Custom home in the Cresta Bella Subdivision.

The Dream Home project serves as a major source of funding for the hospital helping it accomplish its mission of helping children fight cancer and other diseases.

Beginning August 9, 2011, tickets will go on sale for one-hundred dollars each but only a limited number will be sold.
