SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The 2020 St. Jude Dream Home campaign came to an end with thousands of dollars given to the life-saving work at the children’s research hospital.
This 6-month campaign— with more than $6,000 tickets sold— has raised $675,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Each $100 ticket purchased goes directly to the hospital to ensure that families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing, or food as their children battle cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
WSAV is thrilled to announce this year’s winners of the early bird prizes along with the Dream Home. Take a look at the list below:
Tickets on Sale Prize— Getaway for two and a $2,000 VISA Gift Card courtesy of Hyatt Regency:
Winner: Ryan Strickland from Rincon, Ga.
Early Bird Prize– all-inclusive deluxe 7-day cruise for two on Carnival Cruise Line:

Bonus Prize – 2020 Nissan Versa:

Dream Home – the 2020 Savannah St. Jude Dream Home built by Village Park Homes:
Winner: Maria Echevarria from Jacksonville, Fla.
WSAV’s Ben Senger had the honor of calling Echevarria to tell her the good news.
“Is this a joke?” she asked. “I just can’t believe this is really happening.”
Echevarria said she was watching News 3 one night when she saw our coverage of the Dream Home and decided to enter.
“Even if I wouldn’t have won, it was for a great cause,” she said, “but I’m excited I won — this is amazing!
The 2020 St. Jude Dream Home is located in the Enclave at Berwick Plantation.
WSAV has partnered with Village Park Homes for the past three years to make the Dream Home become a reality in the Coastal Empire.
From the team here at WSAV, we would like to extend our thanks to all who participated in the 2020 campaign — from our partners to our viewers.
