Today's the day! We now know who won this year's St. Jude Dream Home. 

Steve Dupree of Paducah is the winner of this year's home! Congratulations, Steve! 

2020 St. Jude Dream Home exterior

This year's 3,000-square-foot home is valued at $375,000. Proceeds from each ticket support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This year's home is in the Hill Creek Subdivision in Marshall County, Kentucky, just off Highway 68 near the Marshall and McCracken county line. It's got three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, spacious patios in the front and backyard, an open concept living room, kitchen and dining area, and a large bonus room above a two-bedroom garage.

Selling tickets for this year's dream home was much different than years past, because of the pandemic. The first ticket sold on May 12. At that point, ticket sales were limited only to people in Kentucky, because of gaming laws. We did open up our phone lines for everyone in all four of our Local 6 states in late June. We sold the final ticket on June 20, for a total of 7,500 tickets.

Every $100 ticket purchased provided not only the opportunity to win beautiful home, but also the chance to win a secondary prize valued at $1,000 or more.

Thank you to everyone who bought a ticket this year! Whether you won or not, you helped the children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!
