Bob Bodin of Moorhead is livin’ the dream after being drawn as winner of the 2013 Boys & Girls Club and WE Fest RV and VIP raffle.

For the second year, WE Fest and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Detroit Lakes and Perham partnered to give away the prizes, valued at approximately $17,000, during WE Fest.

The prize package contained a brand new 21-foot Gulf Stream AmeriLite travel trailer, a WE Fest VIP music and camping package for 2014, and a lot of camping extras including a $200 Minnesota State Park gift card, a camp stove, sleeping bags and other gear.

The raffle raised more than $44,000 to support after-school and summer programming for more than 850 children at the clubs.
