Payne Family Homes St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway - Upcoming Event Dates
C. Bennett is very excited to partner with Payne Family Homes for their third St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. In 1991, Dr. Donald Mack raffled off a home in Shreveport, LA, raising over $166,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Because of the success of the event, that first year, the St. Jude Dream Home became an annual fundraiser and ultimately became the single largest national fundraiser for St. Jude. $27 million was raised last year and the program has raised over $300 million to date. This year will be the 25th anniversary of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.
Today, the survival rate has grown from 4% when St. Jude opened in 1962 to 94% today. As the founder of St. Jude, Danny Thomas once said “No child should die in the dawn of life.” It is with this in mind that we at C. Bennett support and are so passionate about this cause.
