Electrical Connection supports Payne Family Homes and the St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway

ST. LOUIS – This summer one lucky family will win a house valued at more than $400,000 to help support the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® where families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live.


Payne Family Homes is building the home for St. Jude in the Villages of Sandfort Farm subdivision at 1046 Sandfort Farm Dr., in St. Charles, Mo. The annual giveaway is supported by the Electrical Connection, a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association.

Payne Family Homes along with their vendors and trade partners are building the luxury home at zero cost to St. Jude. St Jude is offering anyone the chance to win the home by purchasing $100 individual tickets with the winner selected in a lottery drawing later this summer. 


“We expect to raise more than $1.1 million through ticket sales,” said Dawn Walter, director of marketing, Payne Family Homes.  “And because our vendors and trade partners, like the Electrical Connection, are donating all services to build the home, 100 percent of the ticket sales will benefit St. Jude and the research of life-threatening childhood diseases and its treatment of children fighting those diseases.” 

The house will be equipped with a number of upscale amenities including high-end appliances, cost efficient LED lighting, a private theater, a game room, hockey rink, a speakeasy bar and more.  NECA contractor Branson Electric is managing the electrical installations.


Tours of the house are scheduled to begin on July 13, 2019, with the drawing planned for August 22, 2019.

Proceeds from the ticket sales will benefit St. Jude.  To learn more and purchase a ticket, visit www.paynefamilyhomes.com/st-jude/
