“Oh my God...this is beautiful!”
That’s what 74-year-old Hilda Dukes said when she stepped foot inside of her new home – the 2017 St. Jude Dream Home to be exact.
Dukes said that she enjoyed the neutral colors inside of the house and said that she couldn't believe how beautiful the house was in person.
She has bought tickets for 10 years, but she says that this is the first time that she won anything.
“We purchased the ticket about 45 minutes before the drawing,” said Dukes, “I was sitting there thinking, ‘Do I want to spend $100 or do I want to keep that $100,’ and we talked about it and we decided that it was for the children.”
Dukes says she hasn't decided what she'll do with the home yet, but said she hopes to move into it one day.
