Winner of Cattle Baron's truck says event special to her

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - TYLER, TX (KLTV) - When it came down to buying a chance for a brand new truck one East Texas woman couldn't ignore a little voice, saying go for it.

Hall Buick Pontiac GMC gave Nancy Frazier the keys to the best $100 truck on the road.

Five hundred raffle tickets for the Texas Edition Sierra crew cab truck were sold at a $100 each at the Cattle Baron's Gala.

Frazier's lone ticket was the winner making a special moment for the East Texan whose life has been hit by cancer.

"Both my mom and my dad passed away from cancer and the cancer society is a wonderful organization," said Frazier. "It was something I always thought of doing, and I could almost hear my dad saying to me in his own voice just go ahead and do it so I am truly blessed."

The car dealership raised $50,000 through the car raffle. All of the money raised went to the cancer society.
