WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- One lucky ticket holder walked away with a brand new Dodge truck in Watertown Saturday morning.
The Watertown Urban Mission's Annual Auction kicked off with a car giveaway, thanks to FX Caprara Cars. The winner was William Tario of Adams Center and he says he's a very lucky guy.
One hundred items were also auctioned off throughout the morning to raise money for the Urban Mission. And this year, they decided to take a different approach to create a better event for the community.
"In the past, we've done more items and had a longer event, but this year, we consolidated to our premier 100 items and we've raised typically around $6,000, $7,000. This year, we got a $5,000 head start from Billy and we're hoping to have wonderful day to support the programs that help people in need every day in our community," said Drew Mangione, Watertown Urban Mission Director of Development.
