The KTBS3/St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway was created in 1991 by Dr. Donald Mack, a pediatric physician from Shreveport, Louisiana. Dr. Mack has relied on St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to treat young patients with catastrophic diseases and was the first doctor to send an out-of-state patient to St. Jude.
The first KTBS3/St. Jude Dream Home was constructed in Shreveport, Louisiana, and raised $160,000 for the hospital. Since that first giveaway, the KTBS 3/St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway in Shreveport has become an annual fundraiser, raising more than $30 million for the hospital.
Today, nationaly the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude nationwide and has raised more than $400 million.
This year, the program will include more than 30 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaways and will continue to grow.
