RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Ground was broken Thursday on the next St. Jude Dream Home, the ninth in the greater Jackson area.

The 3200-square-foot house is being constructed in the Township development along Highland Colony Parkway in Ridgeland.

Tickets will soon go on sale for a chance to win the house. The tickets will be $100 and will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

A St. Jude patient from Ridgeland and her mother were present for Thursday's groundbreaking ceremony. The city's mayor was also there, along with the builder, developer, sponsors and others.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for updates and more information on the St. Jude Dream Home.
