A $100.00 raffle ticket that was purchased primarily to help with a worthy cause has resulted in a new house for Callie Walker. In a special feature hosted and televised by KTVE/KARD in Monroe this past Thursday the Quitman resident was announced as the grand prize winner of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.
Held annually now for 20 years in Monroe, the local event is one of more than 40 home giveaways across the United States and raised more than $800,000.00 for the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Proceeds are used for the general needs to run St. Jude, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.
Located at 516 East Frenchman’s Bend in Monroe, the estimated 2,600 square feet house that was built by BRACO Construction features 4 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms and carries an estimated value of $400,000.00.
