Granville Homes will announce the winner of its eighth Home of Hope giveaway on Saturday.

There’s still time to grab your $100 ticket for a chance to win a two-story, 2,216-square-foot home valued at more than $270,000. The three bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom, two-car garage is located in the Sunnyside Grove community near Fowler and Church avenues in southeast Fresno.

If you don’t win the house, don’t worry. There’s a bunch of other prizes available including a helicopter ride, a tennis membership, use of the Save Mart Center Skybox for 16 Fresno State men’s basketball games, a massage package, a television and gift cards to spend on gas or at local businesses.

Granville has built and given away a house every year to raise money for eight charities since 2006. The builder has raised more than $2.4 million.

The charities are: Community Food Bank, Poverello House, Hinds Hospice, Assistance League, Renaissance Scholars at Fresno State and the foundations for Clovis, Sanger, and Central Unified schools. To buy a ticket, call (559) 440-8388.

In November, builder De Young Properties will also hold its drawing for the seventh annual St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. The winner will be announced on Nov. 10 during a live television special on KMPH (Channel 26.1).

De Young has raised more than $5.4 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The St. Jude home is a 3,298-square-foot, four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in the CountryCourt development at Gettysburg and Armstrong avenues in Clovis.
