TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

The 2014 Tyler Cattle Barons' Gala is over, but there was one more thing to do on Wednesday - find out who won a brand new truck.

At Hall Buick GMC in Tyler, Steven Hukill was presented with the keys to a brand new truck.

This was the first time Hukill has bought a ticket for the drawing. He feels that this is a worthy event - his own family has been touched by cancer and most everyone he knows has been affected by cancer in one way or another.

He bought the ticket about a week before the gala and really couldn’t believe he had won when he got the phone call.

I thought she was pulling my leg and I thought there’s no way," said Hukill. "Then, Monte finally called, I think it was Monday, and he told me and I talked to him and he told me I was the winner.

Hukill encourages everyone to buy a ticket for next year's event.
