RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The St. Jude dream home opened its doors Sunday for tours.  Located at the Township at Colony Park in Ridgeland, the four bedroom, two and a half bath is valued at $550,000.

The more than 3,100 square feet home boasts two fireplaces and gourmet kitchen with exposed beams.  Only 8,500 tickets will be sold to win the dream home and all the money raised goes to the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

"Our oldest grandson is a patient at St. Jude so we know first hand what it is like not only for the way they treat the children, but the way they treat the families as well," said Judy Yokum, a St. Jude Dream Home volunteer.  "It's a wonderful cause. They share everything they learn with the world, so not only do the children who go to St.. Jude benefit from the research but everyone else does too."

The house will be open every weekend to tour until the live drawing right here on WLBT on June 5th.  Tickets are $100 each.  If you are interested call 1-800-371-6789.
