Rise and shine! There's no time to waste if you're planning on purchasing tickets for the 16th annual St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Dream Home giveaway. Tickets go on sale at 5:00 AM on Wednesday, April 14th.

There are 17,777 tickets total to be sold this year which sort of sounds like a lot but you would be surprised by how quickly tickets are expected to sell out and once they are gone, they are gone! Last year dream home giveaway tickets sold out in less than 4 hours! Tickets can be purchased online at dreamhome.org or by calling 1-800-537-8939.

This is the 9th year the dream house is being constructed by Berkeley Building Company. Valued at  $624,900, this single-level three-bedroom, three-bathroom home features a yoga studio with a built-in wellness bar, a primary bedroom suite with a "spa experience" bathroom. Now that sounds like my own personal dream home! The house is being built in Meridian's Calistoga Community.

Of course all proceeds from Dream Home ticket sales will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Tickets will be sold for $100 each. To put it in perspective, the amount of one ticket could cover the costs of 2 platelet count tests or 6 meals for a St. Jude family.

That's not all either. Another lucky giveaway winner will receiver a brand new 2021 Ford F-150 pickup truck, courtesy of Treasure Valley Ford Stores. That's not a bad runner up prize at all.

The winner(s) will be announced on May 23rd on KTVB News Channel 7. Tune in to see the drawing and find out who's getting hooked up with the new dream house.

LOOK: Stunning animal photos from around the world

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom. The forthcoming gallery runs sequentially from air to land to water, and focuses on birds, land mammals, aquatic life, and insects as they work in pairs or groups, or sometimes all on their own.
