The St. Jude Dream Home Program has become one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital nationwide. To date, the program has raised more than $288 million for St. Jude. Because a majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors through programs like this one, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. Summit Homes and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital are teaming up for the 6th year in a row to build the Kansas City St. Jude Dream Home Showplace for 2017. Since 2011, our team has come together each year to build a home to support St. Jude’s lifesaving mission. With the help of our generous trade partners and local and national sponsors, we strive to have all labor and materials donated in order to build the Dream Home Showplace at zero cost. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the St. Jude Dream Home Showplace are donated to the children of St. Jude. Since beginning our partnership with St. Jude, we Summit has raised raised over $5 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
One Saturday each fall, the annual St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer brings together supporters in dozens of communities across the United States to walk in their community to raise awareness and funds to support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. We have proudly supported the event since it first came to Kansas City in 2013 and have been a top fundraising team each year. Last year, the Summit Homes team raised more than $20,000.
