NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

In the 6600 block of Pontchartrain Boulevard, the future site of the new St. Jude Dream home, the lot is primed and contractors are ready to build.

St. Jude representatives and contractors broke ground on what will be a 3,100- square-foot Greek Revival home.

St. Jude board member Jim Barkate said the Dream Home Giveaway is an important fundraiser for the hospital.

“The Dream Home program raises $40 million for St. Jude nationwide, so this is a very important program for us,” he said.

You can reserve your chance at the home in March. It will be completed in April, and then you can watch the St. Jude Dream Home giveaway in June.
