Hunter Boynton of Maurice is the winner of this year's St. Jude Dream Home.

We called him to ask what he thought when he heard that he won.

"I didn't believe it. I thought someone was pulling my leg," Boynton told us.

He said it was an easy decision to buy a ticket to support St. Jude.

"It's a great cause they do great work," Boynton tells us. "I've been buying tickets for several years and its the least I could do to support it."

Here are the winners of the other prizes:

$2,500 American Express gift card courtesy of the UPS Store: Brenda Melancon of Lafayette, Louisiana

$10,000 Visa gift card courtesy of Assurance Financial: Tracy Biggerstaff of Youngsville, Louisiana
