East Texas Couple Wins Big at Tyler Dealership

East Texas Couple Wins Big at Tyler Dealership

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - For a hundred dollars, Angela Rivera never thought she would get a brand new truck.

Angela decided to buy a ticket at the last minute at the American Cancer Society's Cattle Baron's Gala.

And, with a one in five hundred chance...she did not expect to win.

"I've never won anything," said Rivera.

From the inside out, this truck is loaded. It comes with leather interior and chrome fixtures on the exterior.  And, it couldn't have come at a better time.

This spring a tornado severely damaged Angela's home in Ben Wheeler.  And last fall, she lost two loved ones.

"I lost my dad and my grandmother.  Actually, I found out on the same day," said Rivera.

The money raised from the Cattle Baron drawing goes to the American Cancer Society.  And that means more to Angela than a new truck.  Her grandmother passed away from lung cancer.

Angela and her husband have been on the market for a new truck.  She say's she is giving the truck she won to her husband as a Father's Day gift.
