  I'm just in awe of how generous our Fox 17 viewers are.  Thank you so very much for once again supporting the St. Jude Dream Home campaign.  Thank you for helping raise $1.4 million dollars for children who are fighting for their lives.
  Each year, I'm amazed at the outpouring of support for the Dream Home project.  Your donations of $100 per ticket top that list of course.  Then there's the builder who donates the house.  This year, that generous builder was Signature Homes.  However, the builder couldn't do it without all the vendors and suppliers who donate everything from the bones of the house all the way up to the last light fixture.  We're talking cabinets, faucets, flooring, brick, drywall and more.   Some of these sponsors are Brizo, Brentwood Cabinets, KCS Construction, Sun Splash, Shaw Floors, Darrell Waltrip Automotive, American Signature Furniture, Monkey Bar Garage Storage Systems, Alley Cassety Company, Acme Brick, and Trane just to name a few.
   This project proves year after year that when everybody gives a little, the children win big.
  Here's the complete list of winners. Chris & Donna Lloyd of Murfreesboro won the St. Jude Dream Home. 19 others won some great prizes. They're listed at this link:
