Winners of 2022 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway enjoy first holidays in new home as 2023 ticket sales open on Jan. 10

As News Channel 3 and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital kick off the 2023 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, we're checking in with the winners of last year's house giveaway.

News Channel 3's Angela Chen caught up with Jose and Mary Gonzalez, who have now moved in to their new St. Jude dream home in Desert Hot Springs. The couple recounts the moment they won, saying they did not believe it until they saw the house.

"I mean, what chance was, was it for us to win?" Mary Gonzalez said. "I didn't believe it. And then we started getting calls."

The Gonzalezes spent the holidays in their new "forever" home with their children. For them, the St. Jude's mission has always been a cause with deep, personal significance because of their daughter.

"In a way, we've always been a part of St. Jude's. Our youngest daughter had cancer while she was working on her master's program, and on her 25th birthday is when she found out she had lymphoma cancer," said Mary Gonzalez. "So because of that, we've always contributed our entire life."

Tickets for the 2023 St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway will be available on Jan. 10. You can register to be notified when tickets are available below!
