Key sponsors of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway include: KSNT 27 News, Drippé Homes, Alpha Media Topeka, South Wind Shelters & Safe Rooms, Carpet One Floor & Home, Azura Credit Union and national sponsors Brizo, Shaw Floors, Trane and Bosch. Volunteers with Epsilon Signa Alpha volunteered throughout the duration of this campaign.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital leads the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food so that they can focus on their child’s survival. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped to push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962.

St. Jude works to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% and it won’t stop until child deaths caused by cancer are prevented completely. Since the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributions, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most: saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
