2019 St. Jude Dream Home is Underway!

This year marks the sixth time that Payne Family Homes has participated in the St. Jude Dream Home 2019 Giveaway as the St. Louis builder, and our “dream home” is dreamier than ever. With our standard, high-quality features and expert design, the home we’re building this year is truly fit for a loving family.

Every day, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital changes the lives of children and their families all over the country. St. Jude’s incredible team of researchers and employees have reached incredible feats, such as raising the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80%! Still, they continue to work toward their goal of eradicating life-threatening disease and putting smiles on children’s faces. We are extremely honored to contribute to their goals.

Best of all, through support from the community, St. Jude is able to make these remarkable strides without families ever having to pay bills for treatment. With nationwide fundraisers, such as the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, local builders and trade partners across the country team together to build brand new homes, and raffle off tickets to find its lucky homeowner. Of course, every last proceed goes to the children.

None of this would be possible without the love, care, and dedication of our talented and thoughtful trade partners, who donate their time and resources to help Payne Family Homes achieve our dream of helping others. Once we’ve come up with the layout for our dream home, which includes features that we don’t offer in our typical product line, we reach out to trade partners to deliver on these concepts. With their help, we’re able to build a unique and spectacular living space!

“Our campaign is truly one of the best dream home campaigns, and our trade partners help make it the best,” Scott Kerns, our area construction manager says. “This will be our 6th year of a no-cost home (Zero Hero’s) meaning 100% of the labor and materials are being donated!” There’s nothing that makes us more proud than being able to say we have contributed every year to helping St. Jude get closer to reaching their goals!

“Our trade partnerships are strong,” Scott says, “and we are unbelievably fortunate to have such willing participants year after year!” We’re so grateful to be able to help make a difference in the community that we love so much, and to continue doing work that changes the lives of families. Take a look at our progress on our 2019 St. Jude dream home, and make sure to read about this wonderful annual tradition.
