All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. At St. Jude, no child is ever denied medical care for their inability to pay. It is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. The hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures that save children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. The hospital freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world.
To date, Summit has raised over $3 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and the company has set a goal of raising an additional $750,000 through the Dream Home Giveaway this year.
“We’re honored to have partnered with St. Jude once again,” said Valerie Rolfes, marketing director for Summit Custom Homes. “We love this project, and we love helping the families of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This truly is a labor of love.”
