TRI-CITIES, WA - Thanks to your online votes, two non-profit organizations in the Tri-Cities will soon be driving brand new Toyota Tundras.

As part of Toyota's national "100 Cars for Good" contest, Rascal Rodeo got word on Thursday that the charity brought in enough online votes on Wednesday to win a brand new truck. 

The organization started in Pasco, but now holds rodeos for people with disabilities throughout the Northwest.

Rascal Rodeo Founder and President Ann-Erica Whitemarsh, who is also a Pasco High School Graduate, says the truck will help the charity expand and reach more people nationwide.

"We have gotten calls from all over the U.S. saying how do we get you here," Whitemarsh said, "and instead of me having to depend on other volunteers and their schedules, and taking someone out of the state, we can just jump in the truck and go."

Habitat for Humanity Tri-Cities also won a Toyota Tundra last week.

The home-building charity says the new truck replace the 20-year-old truck currently in use, to move tools and supplies to different work sites throughout the community.
