Kichler Lighting is National Sponsor for St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway

March 14, 2022
The company will supply fixtures to more than 40 dream homes in 20-plus states.

Kichler Lighting recently became the first-ever national sponsor for interior and exterior lighting for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. The annual fundraising effort benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital helps support its mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. As a national sponsor, Kichler Lighting is donating nearly $500,000 in products for custom-built St. Jude Dream Homes across the United States.

Through the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway program, ticket buyers have a chance to win newly built, single-family homes in more than 40 cities across the United States, with proceeds benefiting St. Jude. Homes range in market value from $300k to $700k and are built using donated or deeply discounted products and services.

As stated in the press release, Kichler Lighting plans to outfit St. Jude Dream Homes with a minimum of $10,000 of interior and exterior lighting, ceiling fans and landscape lighting, a donation totaling nearly $500,000 across all Dream Home properties. And it’s well worth the effort, said Brian Nobbe, executive vice president of marketing for Kichler Lighting.

“At Kichler, we believe in creating products that allow people to see what matters most,” said Nobbe. “Through this national sponsorship, our goal is clear: to support the St. Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children. We’re humbled to be working with tremendous builder partners and industry professionals in this endeavor, all donating their time and resources to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude.”

Dr. Donald Mack created the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway program in 1991, giving away the first house in Shreveport, Louisiana. Today, the organization has raised more than $500 million in 30 years, giving away 590 homes. It now has a presence in more than 40 markets in 20-plus states.
