TODAY is the big day here at FOX 8. Our St Jude dream home ticket sell-a-thon begins at 6am. Tickets are $100 each and we will be selling 18-thousand tickets this year.

You will be able to purchase a ticket by using a credit card. Check back here at 6am and follow the links to purchase or you can call 1-800-834-5786. Since the majority of tickets have been sold online over the last two years, 14-thousand tickets will be available online and 4-thousand by phone.

This is to ensure that the contest stops at 18-thousand tickets. It doesn’t hurt to contact your credit card company today if you plan to order a ticket tomorrow.

Sometimes credit card companies put a block on a charge when it is for a charity. It can be flagged as a fraudulent charge and it is done for your protection.

However, if this were to happen, you would not be able to get another chance to buy a ticket.

The dream home ticket will not only give you a chance to win the half-million dollar dream home built by Buckingham Homes in the Red Tail Golf Community of Avon, Ohio, you will also have the chance to win a 10-thousand dollar hot tub from Litehouse Pools and Spas and a car from the Nick Abraham Auto Mall.
