2020 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway

SJ_Full Vert _Dream Home -Giveaway _4C

Created by St. Jude pioneer Dr. Donald Mack, the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway has raised more than $315 million nationwide to date.  The idea is simple: build a home as inexpensively as possible, sell $100 raffle tickets to the public, and then give away the home!  All the proceeds go towards the fight to end childhood cancer, and the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway has been one of the most successful fundraising efforts for the cause.

Twenty years ago, the first St. Jude Dream Home was built in the Ocean View area of Norfolk.  Now, the EDC Homes team is proud to announce that we are bringing the St. Jude Dream Home full circle by celebrating the 20th Anniversary right where it all began in Ocean View!

An official groundbreaking was held on Friday, November 15th 2019 with an expected completion date of Spring 2020.  Tickets for the St. Jude Dream Home will go on sale this winter!  We encourage everyone to come see the home when it opens for public tours this Spring. 

We would also like to thank all of our subcontractors, trade partners, and suppliers for their participation in this project and we look forward to a successful 2020 St. Jude Dream Home!  As a local builder, EDC Homes has always sought new and innovate ways to give back to the community.  We hope you will join us and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in the fight to end childhood cancer.
