ST. LOUIS, Mo. – An IBEW/NECA Electrical Connection team is now wiring the 15th St. Jude Dream Home in the St. Louis area while donating all resources to build it.

When completed later this year, proceeds from the ticket sales of the home – $1.65 million – will benefit children served by the renowned St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The Electrical Connection is a partnership of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1 and the St. Louis Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association.

Fischer Homes* is building the home with TJV Electric performing the electrical with its IBEW workforce.

The home is built with the generosity and support of sponsors, trade partners and the local community. Every dollar raised goes straight to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for funding research and providing care.

“Our loyal vendors and trade partners like IBEW Local 1 and TJV Electric make the St. Jude Dream Home possible,” said Carrie Iddings, corporate communications manager at Fischer Homes. “Their donated skills create exquisite living space that will ultimately support the lifesaving research being done at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”

Located at 705 Watt Lane, the 3,103-square-foot, five-level home is emerging at Fischer Homes’ new Boulevard at Wilmer community in Wentzville, Mo. The Blair Coastal Classic design features four bedrooms, two and a half baths and several specially designed spaces and amenities.

It also includes an unfinished basement with eight-foot ceilings. The home is valued at $645,000.

“Each year, our members are inspired by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and its critical research and treatment of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases,” said Frank Jacobs, IBEW Local 1 business manager.

Beginning June 6, 2024, a total of 16,500 tickets will be available for a chance to win the home and other prizes at $100 each. The Aug. 15 drawing to give away the home will be carried live on KTVI FOX 2. For more information, visit www.stjude.org/give/dream-home/st-louis.html.
