The Friends of Children’s Hospital MiracleHome committee works throughout the year with a volunteer builder to construct a home using donated materials and sells raffle tickets for a chance to win the home for $100 each. The project was created in 2003 with The Home Builder’s Association of Jackson and is annually presented by Trustmark National Bank.

Co-Created in 2003 by Friends and the Home Builder’s Association of Jackson, the MiracleHome Project combines a volunteer builder and donated materials to raise funds for Batson Children’s Hospital. Each year, raffle tickets are sold for $100 each and only 6,000 are sold. At the end of the campaign, we gathered for the MiracleHome Giveaway Celebration and pulled one lucky ticket out of all the tickets as the winner of the MiracleHome! Several fabulous Secondary Prizes were given away as well. Scott Shoemaker of Shoemaker Homes signed on to build the house for 2014 in The Enclave at Towne Center in Ridgeland.
