Don Egan of Great Falls won the 2018 Toyota Tacoma truck donated by City Motors for the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation's annual truck raffle.

Egan's ticket was drawn during halftime of the C.M. Russell and Great Falls high schools' crosstown football game on Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

The fundraiser earned $120,310 in ticket sales from 12,310 tickets sold for $10 since July.

The foundation beat its goal of selling 12,000 tickets.

More than $500,000 has been raised for Great Falls public education over the past five years of raffles.

A $1,000 gift certificate donated by North 40 Outfitters was also awarded on Friday to Jim Britton of Butte.

School groups that sold the tickets kept $6 from each one, with the other $4 going to the Foundation to support education projects in the school district. Nearly 50 groups including PTAs, athletic teams, music programs, cheer squads, and others sold tickets for their organizations. 

They were joined by 10 retail businesses and individuals within the community who also sold tickets.
