WATCH: 2017 St. Jude Dream Home winner accepts grand prize

Weeks of anticipation all lead up to one grand moment in the St. Jude's Dream Home Giveaway.

One lucky winner found out live on-air that they won the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Dream Home Giveaway grand prize.

The final telethon and ticket drive took place Friday morning at FOX19 NOW studios. The campaign sold out of all 8,500 tickets and raised $850,000 for the hospital.

This year the grand prize was a dream home from Fischer Homes located in The Shire at Arcadia in Alexandria, Ky. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom house is valued at $380,000.

The grand prize winner this year was Damiene Nelson, of Loveland, Ohio. Watch the video in the player above to see the drawing and hear from the winner.
