House give-away benefits charity

The Helen Ross McNabb Center and East Tennessee Public Television have teamed up to bring East Tennessee the inaugural “This New House” Giveaway. Tickets are $100 each and went on sale in December.

They will be sold through April 11, or until 8,000 tickets are sold.

This is a reverse raffle, which means that every ticket will be physically drawn and the last ticket left will win the house.

Only 8,000 tickets will be sold for the raffle. There are 14 other prizes in addition to the house. This makes a ticket holder’s odds 1 in 533 to win a prize. The giveaway will take place April 12, and will be aired live on WBIR-TV Channel 10’s “Live at Five” show.

The house is located in Don Duncan’s new development, Copperstone at Choto, which is off Harvey Road in West Knoxville.

The spacious house is valued at $375,000 and has 3,030 square feet of living space with a 292 square-foot unfinished bonus room. It features three bedrooms with the master on the main floor, two bathrooms, a screened-in porch, gourmet kitchen, vaulted ceilings and a cozy loft upstairs.

Th “This New House” Giveaway is generously sponsored by Prestige Cleaners. Other sponsors include Liberty Mutual, Linda’s Hallmark, Read Window Products, Tindell’s, Abercrombie Radiological Consultants, and Johnson and Galyon. Nouveau Classics and Urban Living are the Open House sponsors. Their furniture will be featured during open houses that will be held in March to give the public an opportunity to tour the house. Media sponsors are WBIR-TV Channel 10, WNOX NewsTalk 99, 100.3 The River, City View, Metro Pulse, and Comcast.
