Stone Canyon donates land for St. Jude Dream Home
For several years, the development in Owasso has donated the land for the St. Jude Dream Home.

With 11,250 tickets up for grabs this year, and the winner announced this month, the 2019 giveaway looks to raise over $1 million for the pediatric cancer research hospital.
St. Jude partners with Epic Custom Homes to build the home itself, which this year features four bedrooms, three bathrooms, 3,500 square feet and an estimated value of $600,000. After Epic Homes comes up with its design, the team at Stone Canyon finds a feasible lot for the home.
Susan McKeon, Stone Canyon sales manager, says the donation is the least they can do. “We’re impacting children and families that are dealing with a deadly disease,” she says. “And hopefully this small piece of dirt that we can donate can help.”
For the children at St. Jude, the importance of donations such as these can’t be understated, says Astrid Rodriguez, development specialist at St. Jude.
“It takes $1 billion to run the hospital every year, and none of the families ever receive a bill,” Rodriguez says. “All a parent should worry about is supporting their kiddo, so we want to make sure that’s the focus, and that’s why projects like the Dream Home are so important.” —
