LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – A Pollok woman who says she's been lucky in the past collected on her biggest winning today.

Southern Chrysler Dodge and the Lufkin Lions Club presented the keys to a 2010 Dodge pick-up truck to Penny Ridgeway. Ridgeway won the truck in a raffle which is part of the Angelina Benefit Rodeo.

Ridgeway said this was not the first time she's won something.

"My friends say I'm lucky," she said. "I've won a trip before, and a quilt."

Ridgeway was in attendance Saturday night when her name was announced.

"We acted like maniacs!" said Ridgeway, who brought her daughter, Kameryn, with her to pick up the truck.

Ridgeway said the winning ticket was among five others she bought before the rodeo began.
