In the previous decades of St Jude Dream Home giveaways in Acadiana the fundraising effort has culminated in a final day push for ticket sales live on KATC television. That wasn't the case in this pandemic year of 2020.

In fact, almost everything about the way we celebrate St Jude Hospital and giveaway the house was different. Except for the fact that, as usual, Acadiana residents opened their hearts and their pocketbooks to purchase tickets for a chance to win the house but mainly to help out the mission of St. Jude.

With every ticket sold and the original giveaway date scrapped because of Hurricane Laura, the drawing for the house and several other great prizes was finally held on Sunday, September 13th.

According to the KATC website, here's who the lucky winners were:

Winner of the 2020 St. Jude Dream Home: Destinee Bruno of Lafayette!

$500 Target gift card: Kardel J and Julie Romero from New Iberia

$2,500 American Express gift card: Christine Walet, Loreauville

$5,000 VISA gift card: Shelton Leblanc, Lafayette

2020 Toyota Camry LE donated by Hampton Toyota: Wilmer Dozier, Delcambre

Once again your efforts raised more than $1million dollars for St Jude Hospital. For every one that purchased a ticket and took a virtual tour this year, we sincerely appreciate your support.
