EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — When Brigida Aguilar found out she won a new car, she immediately knew what she would do with it. Give it away.
Aguilar had been faithfully entering the Alon/7-Eleven Load-the-Code Car Giveaway, putting her name for the drawing more than 100 times.
When she got the call telling her she won, she knew exactly to whom she would give it: her cousin, Diana Servin.
Servin, Aguilar said, was the type to always put others and her family before herself.
"She needs a new one, and I'm very fortunate to have what I need," she said.
How to tell her cousin the news, was a different story.
Monday, Aguilar told Servin she was taking her out for breakfast.
Upon passing the Alon/7-Eleven in the 5000 block of Sean Haggerty Dr., she told her cousin she was stopping to enter a contest.
But instead, Servin was surprised with the news: the 2014 Ford Escape was hers to keep.
"Very thankful, I am very grateful, actually, to God and to my cousin. I'm still kind of shocked," said Servin.
