Newton Custom Homes & Realty has the distinct honor of being the builder for the Charlotte area St. Jude Dream Home.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded by Danny Thomas in 1962 in Memphis, Tennessee and is the worlds leading research hospital for children’s diseases including cancer, sickle cell and others. Since opening, childhood cancer survival rates have increased from 20% in 1962 to 80% today, and St. Jude has a goal of getting that number to 90% in the next decade. St. Jude changes lives of children every day, both with the treatment they provide at no cost to their patients and with the research they freely share with other hospitals all over the world.
The St. Jude Dream Home is an incredible opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives. NCHR partners with our vendors and sub-contractors, donating our time, materials and labor, to build a home at a fraction of the normal cost. (our goal each year is to build it for NO COST) While we are building, the St. Jude marketing team, partnering with WBTV channel 3 and 96.9 Kat Country radio will sell 13,000 raffle tickets at $100 each – raising $1.3 MILLION dollars. All of the proceeds will go to St. Jude for research and treatment of kids battling life threatening diseases. Tickets go on sale in July.
This is our 4th year and we are so blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of this amazing campaign. Once again God is doing amazing things throughout this campaign and we are blessed to have the chance to glorify Him through this work, “for such a time as this”.
