EAST PEORIA, Ill -- Tickets are still on sale for the 2013 St. Jude Dream Home.

Thursday, volunteers gathered in our East Peoria studio for Sell-A-Thon kick off.

Last year, more than 370 dream home tickets were sold on the first day of sales, and organizers say this year's total has surpassed 1,000.

The 2013 Dream Home is located in the Stonehedge Estates in Peoria County.

The four bedroom, three and a half bath home has an estimated value of about $335,000.

Dream Home tickets can be purchased at any Peoria or Tazewell County Kroger location, by phone at 1-800-390-3196 or online at dreamhome.org.
