St. Jude Dream Home floor signing celebrated

A first glimpse for a few people of the 11th annual Saint Jude Dream Home. It's time for the yearly floor signing at the home.

The 2013 dream home is in the Hartsford subdivision in Madison. It's worth approximately $525,000 and will be given away September 22.

Builder Brian Burkley with Deep South Custom Homes says the floor signing is a ritual of good will on behalf of all the dream home supporters. "Vendors and people who've been part of the house and people from the community come in and they actually sign the concrete floor with special messages to patients and to bless the home. We cover the floors within a day or two so those messages that are written in the floor are there forever."

People who purchase their $100 chance to win the home before August 19 also have a chance to win $2,500 in groceries from Kroger.  Tickets can be purchased at any Regions bank branch.

The drawing for the winner of the St. Jude Dream Home will be September 22.
