Groundbreaking ceremony kicks off 2018 St. Jude Dream Home fundraiser

Rossville, TN (WMC) - One of the largest fundraisers for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is underway, the building of the 2018 St. Jude Dream Home.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday in Rossville, TN where the house is set to be built.

The home is a part of a yearly drawing where contestants buy a $100 ticket to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The winner receives the dream home and hundreds of other prizes.

WMC Action News 5 is once again a sponsor of the event that helps ensure families never get a bill for treatment from St Jude.

Southern Serenity Homes is expected to finish the 3,000 square foot home in early March. The giveaway is set for June 2018.
