FAQS

IF I BOUGHT A $15 TOUR TICKET. CAN MY FAMILY GO WITH ME ON THE TOUR?

Each adult 18 years or older needs a ticket to tour the Dream House and your immediate family under 18 years of age is admitted with your tour ticket.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF THE HOUSE, THE DECORATING, FURNISHINGS AND THE SUV?

Approximately $500,000+. The Y will have a certified appraisal done to establish a value.

The 2018 Chevy Equinox LS value is approx. $27,000

DO I HAVE TO PAY TAXES ON THE DREAM HOUSE OR THE SUV IF I WIN?

Yes, the winner is responsible for all applicable taxes. Taxes are based on approved land value. A professional tax adviser provides the winner with a free consultation regarding these issues

HOW AND WHEN WILL THE WINNER BE CHOSEN?

At 7 pm on August 8, 2018, the twenty semi-finalists will be chosen from all tour ticket stubs entered and 10 semi-finalists will be drawn for the SUV. Semi-finalists will be notified by phone and by mail and invited to the drawing at 2 pm on August 12, 2018, where each will choose one key. One of these “lucky keys” will open the Dream House and the SUV semifinalists will choose a key that will start the car. All 20 semi-finalists are eligible to win the Dream House, and all 10 SUV semi-finalists are eligible to win the car. If unable to be present, the semi-finalists may choose a representative, or the YMCA will provide one.

I UNDERSTAND I CAN SAVE MONEY BY PURCHASING MULTIPLE TOUR TICKETS.

Yes, you can save money because when you buy 3 or more tour tickets the price is $13 each rather then $15. Remember, tour tickets make great gifts for friends or family and each purchased tour ticket supports the Lake County Y fundraiser!

IS IT TRUE THAT IF I BUY A TOUR TICKET AND HAVE A CAR TICKET, I MIGHT WIN THE HOUSE OR A SUV?

Yes, someone (18 and over) who purchases a tour ticket will win the beautiful 25th YMCA Dream House plus nearly all of the furnishings, (See posed list in Dream House for complete details on furnishings included in the house). You will also have the opportunity to win a 2018 Chevy Equinox LS if you purchased at least three or more tickets (Three Pack) for the Dream House you would have received a car ticket. There will be two separate drawings, one for the house and one for the SUV. SUV tickets are not sold separately.

I’VE HEARD THERE IS A $275,000 CASH OPTION PRIZE.

True. Instead of accepting the house, the winner may choose a $275,000 cash option. If chosen, the cash payment would be made on in mid-December of 2018. Just as with the house, all taxes are the responsibility of the winner. There is no cash option on the SUV. The winner takes the SUV “as is”
