PEORIA, Ill. -- One lucky person has won a brand new 4 bedroom 2 and a half bath home all in the name of putting an end to childhood cancer.

Sunday night, the winning ticket was drawn for the 2013 St. Jude dream home.

The winner of the home is: Jeremy Duckworth of Princeville, Illinois.

All 6,000 tickets sold out early. After that, donations were accepted.

The grand total raised was $602,400, all going toward St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Dream house builder Brandon Dean of Dean Custom Builders says this was all made possible by the support of the community.

“We have to say thank you to everybody in the community for buying tickets," said Dean. "It was a big deal this year. It was the first sell out in Peoria history, so all we can say is thank you to everybody who bought tickets in support of this years St. Jude Dream Home."
