Last year, the group held its first dream home giveaway, raffling off a beautiful $2 million home. Last year's winner chose instead to take a $1.6 million payout so the home was raffled off again this year, with Wells' ticket being drawn Feb. 21.
The news could not have come at a better time for the couple as they were dealing with the loss of Brad Wells' job working for a high tech company in Silicon Valley.
Officials with Community Action Marin say they sold around 29,000 tickets this year and awarded $200,000 in prizes besides the home giveaway.
The couple has the option of taking the home, or accepting a $1.2 million payout. So far, the Wells family has not announced which option they will pursue.
