LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Tyler County man is the owner of a new truck that was raffled off during the 2015 Angelina County Benefit Rodeo.
Lavoy Eason accepted the truck Thursday morning from Southern Dodge in Lufkin after his brother had his ticket drawn on the final night of the rodeo.
"You get those calls all the time, and when we got the call that he won he didn't believe it and I sure didn't," Eason said.
The truck was donated to the rodeo by Southern and the tires and wheels were given by Dupree Tire. The Lions Club said the group sold around 44,000 tickets for the raffle. The money raised by the raffle and the sales at the rodeo will be donated to the Lufkin State Supported Living Center.
