The YMCA is offering a choice now in its Dream House giveaway -- if you don't want the house, you could choose $100,000 in cash.
Dream House coordinator Patty Hall announced the option Wednesday.
"Our board members met, and the option was suggested by one of them. They have been listening to the community and people are concerned about changing school districts or maybe they already like the house they have, but they still want to support the YMCA," Mrs. Hall said.
The Dream House, valued at $225,000, is located at Whitney Bay Club off Route 394 south of Chautauqua Institution.
"So far we have sold 9,000 $10 tour tickets," said Mrs. Hall. "We think that's pretty good, but we have less than a month to go."
Twenty finalists will be chosen at the Jamestown Jammers game Aug. 25. Of those finalists, one will hold the key to unlock the door the evening of Aug. 27.
Dream House tickets are available at the house, at the YMCA, and a number of other outlets in the Jamestown area.
