SUFFOLK, Va. - The winners of this year's Hampton Roads St. Jude Dream Home giveaway got their first look at their brand-new house Monday morning.

Roberta and Jeff Smith got into their new home for the first time since their winning ticket was pulled last week.

They walked around the home, picked out new bedrooms for their grandkids and checked out all the cool features it has - like a soaking tub in the master suite, granite countertops, and even a built-in coffee machine that connects to Wi-Fi!

The Smiths said they never thought they would win, but they thought it was money well-spent whether they won or lost because it all goes towards supporting children and their families in the fight against cancer.

“We probably won’t win anyway, but I feel like it’s a good cause. We contribute to St. Jude’s. I really like the way they help take care of the families, and when they go up, they don’t have to pay for anything. We’ve had problems in the hospital, family visiting, and it can be costly. So, we just feel good about giving to St. Jude,” Roberta Smith said.

The Smiths said they feel so lucky and so blessed and are still in shock that they actually won the home.

Congratulations to the couple!
