Kaitlyn C. in St Joseph got the phone call all Central Minnesotans are waiting to get early on Friday morning. Kaitlyn, whose winning word was FUN from September 19th, was quickly woken up by the unfamiliar number calling her phone, but she didn't regret answering as she quickly found out she won her dream vacation!

This was the 72nd Dream Getaway that has been awarded by Townsquare Media - St. Cloud, which is made up of 6 stations here in St. Cloud (WJON, Minnesota's New Country 98-1, 96-7 The River, 103-7 The Loon, Mix 94-9, and Granite City Sports AM 1390).

Kaitlyn has won a $4,000 travel voucher to use with Bursch Travel in Waite Park, when we talked to Kaitlyn Friday morning, she wasn't quite sure where she would go with the voucher, but she is getting married soon, so the ultimate honeymoon might be in her travel plans.

Kaitlyn admitted that she has played Dream Getaway in the past and this time around she entered in about 20 codes, but all it took was 1.
