HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Folks who want to take a chance on owning a brand new home for $100 while helping the United Way have just over two weeks to do so.

The last day for ticket sales in the 12th annual Home Sweet Home Raffle is Aug. 17.

That event is a major fundraiser for the United Way of Southeast Mississippi.

The home featured in this year's raffle is two-stories, with three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It's located in the Bellegrass Subdivision of Lamar County and is valued at $315,000.

This year's raffle winner will have the option of taking $100,000 cash instead of the home.

"We just encourage everybody to come out and see it," said Brooke Bryan, Campaign/Communications Associate for the United Way of Southeast Mississippi. "We have open houses every weekend until August 17th. And if you buy your ticket at an open house, you actually will be entered into a second drawing for a chance to win another ticket for free, so, there's an added bonus," she said.

The drawing will be broadcast live on WDAM-TV on Aug. 25.
