Willow Branch Homes has graciously donated one of their brand-new builds to raffle off in support of two local nonprofits: Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt; and I Am Second. The organizations will offer the chance to win the home later this month.

Tickets, at $100 each, went on sale this summer for the first I Am Home Raffle, and a winner will be drawn on November 27th. The I Am Home Raffle home is nestled in Thompson’s Station, in The Fields of Canterbury subdivision.

This brand new 3,072 square-foot modern home includes four bedrooms, three and a half baths, a two-car garage and an open-concept kitchen. Willow Branch designed the home interior, along  with I Am Second’s celebrity ambassadors, Kathie Lee Gifford and Moriah Peters. Kathie and Moriah demonstrate talent and exquisite taste within their lifestyles, careers and homes, and they are thrilled at the opportunity to collaborate and curate a beautiful aesthetic for this residence. J.J. Ashley’s contributed to the home’s décor as well as YOUR Williamson contributors, Deck Your Halls with Jill and Holly. They provided the beautiful fall décor adorning the front porch, dining table and fireplace mantel. 

Kathie, who lives in Williamson County, became involved with the home raffle when her friend Angie Clawson asked her to participate.  “Angie Clawson is the National Director of Relationship Marketing for I Am Second,” says Kathie. “I’ve known her now for many years, and she and her husband, Greg, are two of the greatest examples of God’s love I’ve ever been blessed to know. They simply walk the walk. So, Angie rarely asks for anything, but when she does, there is no way I can deny her. This is a partnership with the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and I am honored to be a very small part of it.”

Kathie says that interior design has been her passion all her life. “As a child, I would decorate a cardboard box, so this was a no-brainer,” says Kathie. “ I just let the spirit of Tennessee inspire me alongside my friend Mariah Peters. 

“How I wish each person who buys a ticket could win this home,” says Kathie. “Sharing the heart of my home with the people I adore is a great joy. So I invite you to support these  organizations by purchasing a ticket for a chance to win the key to this beautiful property. May God bless you and each of your homes.”

Willow Branch Homes broke ground on the build in April 2021, and the home will be move-in ready in November 2021. 

Limited tickets are available, and participants can purchase a ticket online at With every purchase, not only are you entering to win this remarkable home; but you are directly supporting the mission of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, Tennessee’s premier pediatric health care facility, and I Am Second, a faith-based organization spreading hope to the community.

“We are excited to be named a beneficiary of the I Am Home Raffle later this fall,” said Meg Rush, MD, MMHC, President of Children’s Hospital. “At Children’s Hospital, we come to work every day focused on providing hope and healing for children through our commitment to personalized patient care. We are so grateful to have Willow Branch as a new community partner to support us in our service and dedication to children and families in our community.”

 “I Am Second is honored to be able to join with such incredible partners and offer another way to serve the local community,” said I Am Second Executive Director, Mike Jorgensen. “We are thankful for all who participate in supporting our work and in making a great home available to a family in the community.”

“I’m excited that somebody’s dreams are going to come true,” says Kathie. “Someone hopefully, who felt that it could never happen for them. But I know that with God, all things are possible.” 

For just $100, you could live in the house and community of your dreams. Learn more at
