The Dream home raffle is now over and the winner got a look at his brand new home earlier today.
Don Lance laid his eyes on his brand new castle today as he was given the keys to a new home for him and his family.
The home was the prize for a raffle sponsored by St. Jude's Children's home to raise money for one of the premier cancer centers for children.
The home is valued at 3 hundred and 50 thousand dollars and tickets for the raffle were one hundred dollars apiece.
But even for all the good that comes from purchasing a ticket Lance is still overwhelmed that he won.
Don Lance: "My boss man called me, and when he called me he asked me if I bought the ticket, and I said yes. He said well you just won. And it took me about a block or so to get pulled over but I had to pull over and regroup on the side of the road it's like, and I'm still completely blown away by it."
Lance and his family received a tour of the home from builder Jeff Liszewski.
The home features many other modern upgrades in 32 hundred square feet of living space.
Once again, congratulations to Don Lance.

You could be asking for trouble.
Some recent high-profile Twitter hacks serve as good reminders that both prominent and everyday social media users have to take precautions.
Karin Caifa (prono: KAY-fuh) has this week's Clicked In.
NOT EVERYONE HAS MILLIONS OF TWITTER FOLLOWERS, AND NOT EVERYONE'S TWEETS OR HACKED TWITTER ACCOUNTS CAN MOVE MARKETS.
STILL, ANY USER CAN TAKE BASIC PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT SOCIAL MEDIA PASSWORDS, TO AVOID UGLY HACKS AND STOLEN PERSONAL INFORMATION, NOT TO MENTION SPARING FOLLOWERS AND FRIENDS FROM SPAM.
FIRST, DON'T BE LAZY ABOUT PASSWORDS. HAVE A DIFFERENT ONE FOR EACH SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNT. THAT WAY, IF HACKERS GET INTO ONE PLATFORM, THEY CAN'T GET ACCESS TO ALL OF THEM.
IF IT'S TOO TOUGH TO MEMORIZE ALL OF THOSE NUMBER, LETTER AND SYMBOL COMBINATIONS, CONSIDER AN APP THAT CAN MANAGE THEM LIKE "ONE PASSWORD" FOR APPLE, ANDROID AND WINDOWS, OR "ONE SAFE" FOR APPLE PRODUCTS.
ONE OF THE SNEAKIEST HACKER TRICKS OF LATE - THOSE DIRECT MESSAGES OR TWITTER MENTIONS THAT APPEAR TO BE FROM A CONNECTION, AND ASK THINGS LIKE, "HEY, IS THIS YOU IN THIS PICTURE?" IT'S NOT... BUT IT'S TEMPTING TO CLICK ON THE ACCOMPANYING LINK AND WHEN USERS DO, SUDDENLY, A HACKER CAN HAVE ENTRY.
AND IF YOU'VE SIMPLY STOPPED USING AN ONLINE PLATFORM, ACCOUNT OR SERVICE, DELETE IT COMPLETELY. FEWER PASSWORDS MEAN FEWER OPPORTUNITIES TO GET HACKED.
