The three-bedroom, three-bathroom 2023 Kansas City St. Jude Dream Home will be approximately 2,600 square feet and features farmhouse elevation, an entertainment and bar area in the basement, and additional features to come. The home is located in the Reserve at Riverstone, one of the fastest-growing new home communities in the Northland.

“It’s truly an honor to have been chosen as the builder for the 2023 St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway and we’re thrilled to welcome this incredible event back to Kansas City,” said Brian Tebbenkamp, owner, and general manager of Patriot Homes. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Patriot Homes, our trade partners and our community to support the lifesaving work happening at St. Jude and improve the lives of children everywhere.”
The St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway program is one of the most prominent and longstanding fundraisers for St. Jude nationwide, having raised more than $600 million dollars since 1991. Continued support from programs like this help fuel the six-year, $12.9 billion St. Jude strategic plan to accelerate research and treatment for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food so they can focus on helping their child live.
National sponsors of the St. Jude Dream Home® Giveaway include Brizo, Shaw Floors, Trane, Bosch, and Kichler.
