Odds are better than ever in St. Jude's Dream Home raffle

By Sarah E. Thien

Organizers of the Central Coast St. Jude Dream Home raffle report that fewer than 2,000 of the 10,000 available tickets have been sold, making the odds of winning better for everyone.

They’ve even added another incentive. Now, a $100 raffle ticket buys a chance to win a $350,000 house being built by Flatley Homes at the Celebration subdivision off of Miller and Betteravia in Santa Maria—and enters the ticket holder in a bonus raffle for a $1,000 gas card.

Tickets must be reserved by midnight on Aug. 15 to win, and they’re being sold at First American Title locations, the Home Builders Association in San Luis Obispo, Addamo Vineyards Tasting Room, Discolandia, or by calling 1-800-834-5794.
