Award winning home builder Summit Custom Homes is for the third year in a row building the 2013 St. Jude Dream Home. Construction started in November of 2012 and is quickly progressing. The Dream Home’s grand opening will take place on April 20th and will be raffled off to one lucky winner during the live giveaway special on June 23, 2013.

The 2013 St. Jude Dream Home is being built in the Raymore resort lifestyle community of Creekmoor, located north of 58 Highway off Foxridge Drive. The home, a 4,222 square foot two-story on a daylight golf course lot, features five bedrooms; five bathrooms; a finished basement; and a three-car garage and is valued at more than $450,000. The home will also feature an integrated master suite and laundry room, a spacious tiled master bath shower, custom built-in bookcases, outdoor living space, and custom kitchen cabinetry with granite countertops. The home will feature Summit’s proprietary Green Build Advantage program delivering superior energy efficiency, healthier indoor air quality and environmentally friendly building practices.

Summit Custom Homes’ goal for their 2013 Dream Home is to sell over 10,000 tickets and raise over $1 Million dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where no child is ever denied for their inability to pay. St. Jude is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. The hospital freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance.

Summit Custom Homes and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital have teamed up for 3 years in a row to build the Kansas City St. Jude Dream Home. Summit has, to date, raised over $1,850,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
“We are truly honored to be partnered with St. Jude and to be the 2013 Dream Home builder. We are touched by the outpouring of support we have received from our valued trade partners who have generously donated time and materials to build the home,” commented Fred Delibero, President of Summit Custom Homes.

St. Jude Research Hospital has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world, serving as a trusted resource for physicians and researchers. St. Jude has developed research protocols that helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancer from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened to almost 80 percent today. St. Jude is also a leader in sickle cell disease research and is a globally prominent research center for influenza.
