EDWARDS, Ill. -- Cloudy skies could not put a damper on the groundbreaking celebration for the 2014 St. Jude Dream Home.

Dignitaries, volunteers and builders came together Tuesday morning to launch the project.

The new four bedroom home will be worth an estimated $330,000.

St. Jude officials said more than 300 homes have been given away across the U.S. and raising more than $240 million for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Tickets for this St. Jude Dream Home go on sale January 14.
