Eight thousand tickets were bought and one was randomly drawn for the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home on Friday. Thanks to the generosity of Cincinnatians overall, $803,045 was raised to support the life-saving research and treatment at the hospital.
FOX19 teamed up with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Fischer Homes to give away the amazing new home in Batavia valued at $335,000. Paul Janszen of Colerain Township was chosen to win the home during a live drawing on the FOX19 Morning Xtra.
St. Jude's is well-known for its local home giveaways across the country, with proceeds benefiting the prevention and cure of serious diseases facing children.
Those who purchased a ticket were automatically entered to win a number of prizes in addition to the new home, including a $4,000 Visa gift card and a new 2014 Honda Civic.
And if Janszen's name sounds familiar, he was a key player in Major League Baseball's investigation of Pete Rose in the late 1980s.
But Janszen wants the focus to remain on the good work that St. Jude does.
