St. Judes Dream Home
Since 1991, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital has built Dream Homes every year across the United States as a fundraiser, which is known as St. Jude’s Dream Home Giveaway, to fund their cancer research. Since the first home was built, St. Jude has raised more than $23 million for the hospital in its hometown of Shreveport, LA. To this day, the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single event fundraisers for St. Jude nationwide and has raised more than $290 million giving away more than 30 homes each year and is expected to continue growing.
With this year’s fundraiser in the Tulsa area, St. Jude sold 10,000 tickets at $100 each which raised a total of $1,000,000. The dream home was built the luxury community of Stone Canyon located in Owasso. This home is valued at approximately $525,000 and was built by Epic Homes. This year, Discount Garage Door decided it was time to give back to the community and become a sponsor.
Discount Garage Door donated and installed two LiftMaster Garage Door Openers, Model #8360, with battery backups and two Wayne Dalton Fiberglass High R Value Insulated Garage Doors, Model #9800, for a total donation of approximately $24,000.00 retail cost. These overhead doors can be seen at the home which is located at 19225 E. Twin Creeks Drive, Owasso, OK.
Discount Garage Door has a plan in the works to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Dream Home Giveaway in 2015. We will be donating and installing two Wayne Dalton Overhead Garage Doors, Model #6600, and two LiftMaster Garage Door Openers, Model #8360. This next year’s total donation from Discount Garage Door will have a retail value of approximately $9000.00. We are excited to be a part of the 2015 St. Jude Dream Home project and look forward to helping them reach their goal in the 24th annual St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.
