How would you like to win a brand new home and support an amazing cause at the same time?
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - WKYT is again partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the 2023 Dream Home giveaway.
This year’s home will be built at 3517 Stolen Horse Trace in the Home Place subdivision off Polo Club Boulevard.
Ground was broken today for the newest St. Jude Dream Home in Lexington.
The new home being built on Stolen Horse Trace in the Hamburg area could be one lucky winner’s dream come true.
This is the ninth year for the Dream Home Giveaway in Lexington, but the first year for Chris and Chellie Mulberry, owners of Mulberry Builders.
“The building industry has been very fortunate to us, we have been able to provide for our family and all of our team members families and it was just a great way to give back to a cause that is so much bigger than ourselves and our company,” said Chris Mulberry.

Valued-mid $400,000 range
Chris Mulberry says there is no skimping on the design of the 2023 house.
“So they can expect for no detail to be missed. Our suppliers and our vendors told us they are giving us the best stuff they have and want to give, so we are going to make this just one of the nicest houses you can imagine,” said Mulberry.
All of the money raised through the sale of the $100 tickets for the Dream Home giveaway will benefit the Memphis based facility that gives hope to some of the sickest children and their families.
“The kids and families of St. Jude never receive a bill, not for travel, treatment, housing or food so families can focus on what matters most and that’s helping their child survive,” said Shay Hutchinson, St. Jude.
And its that mission that led the family first business of Mulberry Builders to partner with St. Jude this year.
“To us family, there is nothing greater than that and as parent its imperative to be able to make sure you can do whatever you need to for your child to stay well and so how could we not get involved,” said Chellie Mulberry.
The tickets for a chance to win the 2023 St. Jude Dream Home go on sale July 6, 2023 and the house is set to be given away on September 28, 2023.
