A Dream Home for
Children’s Research Hospital
Where would you turn for help?
For many, the answer is St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital because of their unique operating model, where, most of their funding comes from generous donors, so that the families they care for never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.
If your child became sick with a life threatening illness such as cancer or sickle cell disease, you would want the best treatment available—no matter the cost. You can’t put a price on a person’s life.
It’s hard to imagine how any family can handle this type of emotional hardship—let alone the financial difficulties—that can stem from undergoing years of treatment.
Icon Building Group strongly believes in the power of service and giving back to the world. So the decision was an easy one, when the opportunity came along to do something to benefit kids. Icon, their trade partners, Premier Realty Group, Manhard Consulting, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, along with their National Sponsors, banded together to build a luxury home for the lowest possible cost, to then in turn sell the home, and donate the difference to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The completed home, now fancily dubbed St. Jude’s Dream Home Showplace, is an opportunity like no other that pairs the thrill of owning an amazing brand new custom home from Icon Building Group, and seeing 100% of the proceeds being donated to the St. Jude mission of finding cures and saving children.
