CLEVELAND-Thank you Northeast Ohio. For the seventh year in a row, you have helped children battling cancer at St. Jude.
We sold out in about an hour for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway ticket sell-a-thon Thursday morning.
This year’s ‘Dream Home’ is located in Avon Lake. The coastal cottage theme home has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is valued at $410,000.

When you buy a ticket you also will qualify to win a car from Nick Abraham Auto Mall and a hot tub from Litehouse Pools and Spas.
