Take a chance on GPR's Dream Trip Raffle

A $50 ticket could win you the adventure of a lifetime.

Ducks Unlimited’s Region 2 Great Plains Event Fundraising Team has put together the Dream Trip Raffle with trips including an African Safari, a dove hunt in Argentina, king salmon fishing on Lake Michigan and hunting or fishing trips to all the Great Plains states.

You can buy tickets from May 25 to June 7.

“We are giving people the chance to win bucket-list hunts and several of these trips are in the Great Plains/Mountain regions, places that many hunters in the United States dream of visiting,” said DU Colorado Regional Director (RD) Ben Vaughn. “Usually raffles include one trip option and a couple of prizes, but we are giving away 10 trips, most of which are within driving distance for the people in our region.”

This raffle is the first of its kind in the region.

“Folks are impressed with the variety and the appeal of these trips,” he said. “What really makes this work is each RD offers a trip in their state. This raffle would not be possible without the dedication of our team and the many great RDs, volunteers, local outfitters and guides who donated trips. Because of that generosity we can put most of these funds directly into conservation instead of paying for prizes.”

The winning tickets will be drawn on June 8th at 7 p.m. MST via Zoom meeting. All ticket purchasers will be sent a link to the drawing. State DU Facebook pages will also be showing the drawing live. All winners will be contacted afterwards and sent the certificates for their trip.
