Dream Home Tickets to Go On Sale

Tommy Bassett of Columbus had never won a big prize in an contest but last year the retired school principal won a $379,000 house in the St. Jude Dream Home Giveway.

Today, Columbus Mayor Jim Wetherington will purchase the first $100 ticket for this year's contest which supports St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

Wetherington will be at Wachovia Financial Centers at 1915 Auburn Avenue to get the ticket.

Tickets may be purchased at Wachovia Banks.
