ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Artesian City Sertoma Club hosted the 25th Annual Spring Sportsman's Banquet and auctioned off a new truck Thursday night.

Participants had the chance to win a brand new 2017 GMC Sierra truck.

Tickets were sold at $200 a piece and came with a dinner.

All the money goes to helping non-profits in the community such as the Lily Pad, the Boys & Girls Club, the Anchorage and Graceway to name a few.

"The reverse raffle winner will be the proud owner of this new truck tonight," said Artesian City Sertoma Club President Victor Sullivan. "We have done this for 25 years. Our goal is to give away $20,000 to local non-profits every year."
