A half million dollar home for $100.00 and a great cause. The deadline is looming for those that wish to purchase a raffle ticket to own a beautiful home, valued at over $500K in Castle Rock, CO. Benenficiaries of this project will be St. Jude and all of the children thatare treated at this incredible hospital. The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is selling raffle tickets for $100.00 and all proceeds go directly to benefit St. Judes childrens research Hospital for treatment of childhood cancer. The entire St. Judes Hospital runs exclusively on donations and Bob Woodley, owner of Joyce homes decided to step up to the table and design, build and giveaway a home for the purposes of raising money for this great cause.

Bob Woodley and Joyce homes are well known in and around Denver, they has been building custom homes for over 30 years here and have a very highly respected reputation. Other sponsors of the Dream Home giveaway, include, The Meadows, a fantastic community just 15 minutes south of The Denver Tech Center and home of the St. Jude Dream Home. The community includes a water park and recreation center, miles of trails, a golf course, shopping and many more amenities.

Other prizes that will be given away - Suzuki, is giving away a Suzuki Kizashi SE, there will be $1000's of dollars in gift certificates from Target, KMart, The Outlets at Castle Rock, a Napolean Gas Grill. Some other sponsors that donated many items to the cause are the Fireplace Warehouse, Furniture Row, and ESA, Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a non-profit that donates time and money to projects jsut like this one. I am sure I have missed a few names and sponsors, please feel free to add to this post, I would love to see them sell out of tickets.

The St.Judes Childrens Research Hospital was founded by the late Danny Thomas, he wanted to ensure a place that kids could go and get the best treatment possible without having to worry the families about the cost of the treatment, over the years they have seen the recovery go from a very low 17-18% survival rate to well over 90%.

I would like to say thank you to everyone involved in this great cause, thank you for your time, thank you for your donations and thank you all for contributing.  

PS The raffle will take palce on 11/11/11

I enjoy helping agents to find their niche! Not sure how? I am happy to help.

A good agent will "Dance to his customers Music" but a great agent will "Write the Music that attracts the clients he is best suited to work with"

If you are a new agent and finding the road more difficult than you thought, please send me a note and I would be happy to help.
