Middle Tennessee home builder Willow Branch Homes has donated one of their new homes to raffle off in support of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

Proceeds of the raffle will benefit Children’s Hospital, Tennessee’s premier pediatric health care facility, along with another local nonprofit, I Am Second, a faith-based organization spreading hope to the community.

“We are excited to be named a beneficiary of the I Am Home Raffle later this fall,” said Meg Rush, MD, MMHC, President of Children’s Hospital. “At Children’s Hospital, we come to work every day focused on providing hope and healing for children through our commitment to personalized patient care. We are so grateful to have Willow Branch as a new community partner to support us in our service and dedication to children and families in our community.”

Tickets went on sale Aug. 31, for the first-ever I Am Home Raffle, and a winner’s name will be drawn on Nov. 6. Tickets cost $100 each.

Per state law, Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Children’s Hospital employees and their immediate families are not eligible to participate.

The I Am Home Raffle home is located in the Fields of Canterbury neighborhood in Thompson’s Station, Tennessee, just minutes from the town of Franklin.

The Fenwick B plan boasts four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The 3,072-square-foot home is valued at $634,000 and features a two-car garage, open concept kitchen and more.

The home interior is designed by Willow Branch along with I Am Second’s celebrity ambassadors, Kathie Lee Gifford and Moriah Peters, who have taken on numerous home renovations and new builds.

“Sharing the heart of my home with the people I adore has been one of the greatest joys of my life,” said Gifford.

“I invite you into the heart of each one of these organizations by supporting the I Am Home project and purchasing a ticket for a chance to win the key to this beautiful property.”
