RICHMOND HILL, Ga. (WSAV) – The 2021 St. Jude Dream Home contest has come to an end with thousands of dollars given to the children’s research hospital.

Coleen Biezenbos, of Savannah, is this year’s winner, WSAV News 3 announced Wednesday night.

“I’m very, very excited of course and it’s hard to believe!” Biezenbos told News 3. “This is something that always happens to someone else. It came up on my feed on my phone and I thought, ‘why not? This is such a good cause and you want to donate one hundred dollars anyway.’ And that’s what I thought at the time that I bought the ticket.”

Her ticket was one of 7,000 reserved during the campaign — which sold out earlier this month.

With your help, $701,000 is going to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to aid families with children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Every $100 ticket sold will help ensure families never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.

This year’s home is located in The Preserve at Richmond Hill Plantation neighborhood.

Valued at $320,000, the nearly 2,000 square foot three-bedroom was constructed by Ashwood Fine Homes and staged with furniture by Ethan Allen.
