Free home awarded

A Scottsdale-based homebuilder is awarding a free home to a California woman.

Jennifer Draa, a single mother from Citrus Heights, Calif., filled out an entry that was picked from nearly 638,000 submitted in Taylor Morrison Inc.’s national Dream Home Giveaway. About 61 percent of the entries came from Arizona, California, Colorado and Florida, which are Taylor Morrison markets. Several hundred entries were received daily during the 61-day contest. It started June 20 and ended Aug. 20.

Draa has chosen a new home in a Taylor Morrison development near Sacramento. Her grand prize package includes new home furnishings from World of Décor, a national upscale home furnishings and décor company.

Draa also won a vacation for four to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.

Taylor Morrison CEO Sheryl Palmer credits the national sweepstakes with 22 verifiable new home sales that resulted from entrants’ online research of the company’s communities or their visits to the model homes.

The manager is Sundt Senior Vice President Greg Moore.
