The Saint Jude Dream home has new owners this morning.

On Sunday, John and Susan Burgin of Crowley became the winners of the home valued at $650,000. Last night Susan and John got to see their brand new home for the first time. 

Susan says that she and her husband were having a normal Sunday afternoon when they got a phone call congratulating them on winning the home. 

"My husband got a phone call from a patient of his and they said congratulations. We didn’t know what he was talking about."

It wasn’t until the Burgins got a call from Scott Brazda that things started coming together. 

The new homeowners couldn’t believe their luck in winning such a beautiful home. The Burgins, however,  realize what a great contribution they and others have made to St. Jude Children Research Hospital by contributing to the giveaway. 

"We know how good a program it is and how they help people," says Susan. "We’ve had several people we know and love that have had children treated there."

Several other prize winners were announced during the giveaway on Sunday. To see those winners scroll down.

Money collected from ticket purchases goes towards helping patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their families.
