Bridget Townsend is the winner of the St Jude Dream Home. She currently lives in Midway, Ga. but will be moving to her brand new $400,000 “Dream Home” built by Mungo Homes..
Townsend took a $100 chance and entered St. Jude’s Dream Home Giveaway, a fundraising campaign that began in April.
“It’s amazing, and truly a blessing” were the words of Townsend as she toured her new home for the first time with her in-laws, Charles and Freddie Gilyard. She said, “I feel like I am dreaming”.
Townsend who has supported St. Jude through the years felt “I can make a purchase even if I don’t win anything, it’s going to help somebody,’ and I had something that I could help someone with.”
Her ticket is part of a donation of more than $600,000 from the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry.
“Families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food,” says Amber VanNoy of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Our mission is to make sure every single family that goes to St. Jude is taken care of.”
Every penny raised in the giveaway will help the families of kids fighting the battle of their lives at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Townsend and her husband now have two children in college and are on their way to their new home.
