"Stites & Harbison is very honored to be a part of the 2008 Dream Home team,” said Bryan Echols, an attorney with the firm’s Franklin office. “Like the other participants, we have a long history of service to our community and enjoy being involved in worthwhile causes such as this one."
Organizers have set a limit of only 16,000 $100 tickets for this year’s giveaway, potentially raising $1.6 million for St. Jude, which is dedicated to the eradication of life-threatening childhood diseases. Winners of the St. Jude Dream Home house and other prizes will be drawn during a live broadcast on WZTV Fox 17 Sunday, June 22nd. In addition to the house, local sponsors have donated prizes for the give-away, including a Game Table Set courtesy of Legacy Billliards, $1,000 gift card courtesy of The Factory at Franklin, his and her watches courtesy of Crown Jewelry, Two Masters series tickets courtesy of the Nashville Symphony, a Spa and Home Fitness Package courtesy of Watson’s and many other prizes.
“Tickets sold out a week early during last year’s campaign,” said Katie Mizell, Senior Event Marketing Representative for St. Jude. “To ensure a chance at winning the 2008 Dream Home or other prizes, we are encouraging people to buy early and it only makes sense to purchase before April 15th to be entered into the Early Bird prize as well.”
The Middle Tennessee St. Jude Dream Home campaign started in 2004 and has quickly become one of the leading St. Jude Dream Home campaigns in the country. In 4 years, Southern Land Company has helped raise more than raising more than $3 Million for the hospital. In 2007, Southern Land Company Homebuilding was named St. Jude Builder of the Year. After reaching this year’s goal of $1.6 Million, Middle Tennessee will be host to the largest St. Jude Dream Home campaign in history.
Amy Grant and Vince Gill are the co-chairs for this year’s Dream Home giveaway. “Vince and I are excited about being involved in the Dream Home campaign again this year,” said Grant. “It is great to raise such a large amount of money for an organization that we hold near and dear to our hearts. We are thrilled to be a part of a campaign that is going to make history.”

The 2008 St. Jude Dream Home goal is to raise $1.6 million (a total of 16,000 tickets priced at $100 per ticket) for the hospital between February 22 and June 22.
