Founded in 2002, McLain Homes, LLC is the culmination of a lifetime of experience in real estate and construction and has a solid reputation for building beautiful homes in the Acadiana area. Inspired by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s selfless contributions to families affected by this devastating disease, McLain Homes actively sought to help by joining the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway fundraising event.
McLain Homes has been a proud sponsor, vendor, builder, designer, and promoter of the Acadiana St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway since 2010. Each year, McLain Homes raises more than $1 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and the company has won multiple awards for its tireless efforts in the collective fight against childhood cancer.
Each year has proven to be a unique experience that significantly contributes to the groundbreaking research and treatment at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We are all excited to see what will continue to unfold with the Acadiana St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway in the years ahead!
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has played an integral role in saving lives of children suffering from severely debilitating diseases, having spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children. Their trailblazing research and efforts have pushed the survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20 percent in 1962 to more than 80 percent today.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures and discover means of prevention for life-threatening pediatric diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion, or a family's ability to pay.
St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway
Started in 1991 by Dr. Donald Mack, a pediatric physician from Shreveport, Louisiana, the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway has become a pivotal part of the fundraising efforts by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude relies heavily upon community fundraising to uphold its mission and to ensure that no family members have to deal with the overwhelming financial burden of medical expenses for their child's care.
The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single-event fundraisers in the nation for St. Jude and has raised more than $290 million. Over the years, the program has exploded from its origin in Shreveport, Louisiana, to more than 30 locations across the United States.
Acadiana 2016 St. Jude Dream Home
Located in Grand Pointe at 110 Thames Dr. in Lafayette, the 2016 Acadiana St. Jude Dream Home stands as a beautiful, powerful testament to the Acadiana community’s support in the fight against childhood cancer.
The 2016 home is designed with a farmhouse style. It conjures up feelings of family, comfort, and security, which are all traits indicative of the St. Jude community. The kitchen and laundry room use elements such as painted brick, antique wood, shiplap walls, and subway tile to accomplish this look.
The Acadiana 2016 St. Jude Dream Home would not be possible without the generous sponsors who have turned the dream home into a reality. We sincerely thank KATC-TV3, 97.3 The Dawg, and each and every one of you for your outstanding sponsorship and selfless desire to make a difference in the lives of others.
