The annual Duchesne High School Dream Home Sweepstakes is underway, with the winner announced at the end of April. Ticket sales are limited to 3,500 to increase odds at winning a $120,000 grand prize.
Chuck Nolan, school president, started the Dream Home program more than 20 years ago, when he was an administrator.
“Duchesne’s Dream Home sweepstakes is the best kind of win-win,” Nolan said. “It gives people an opportunity to win a life-changing amount of money while supporting an institution whose exceptional education experience rivals schools with tuition that costs twice as much as ours.”
Sweepstakes proceeds directly benefit Duchesne students by funding classroom materials and equipment, retreat programs, technology and more.
The grand prize drawing will take place at the conclusion of Duchesne’s Pioneer Expedition Dinner Auction on Saturday, April 29.
Fischer & Frichtel Homes co-sponsors the sweepstakes. The grand prize winner has a choice between a $150,000 credit toward new home construction at a Fischer and Frichtel community or $120,000 in cash. In addition to the grand prize, there are 19 other chances to win prizes between $500 and $5,000. Tickets are $100; purchase is available at Duchesne’s Advancement Office, 310 N. Duchesne Drive, St. Charles or online – www.duchesne-hs.org/dream-home.html.
Tickets will be sold until April 29 and are available online and at (636) 946-2603 until noon that day. People may also purchase tickets during the dinner, starting at 5 p.m.
