Devon Vancura, a 23-year-old engineering student in Nebraska, got a major vehicular upgrade last week when we took home the grand prize in the annual Heartland United Way drawing – a 2018 Cadillac CT6.
The new luxury sedan was given away by Heartland United Way, a charitable organization based out of Grand Island, Nebraska, that focuses on local efforts to improve education, income, and health. The organization’s fund-raising efforts include giveaways for donors.
Vancura says he’s more of a fan of pickups, and will likely be trading in his new 2018 Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan. However, that still remains up in the air.
“I haven’t decided yet,” Vancura said. “I’m still processing it all.”
“Well see. I still have a lot of student loans from college yet. So we’ll see how things play out.”
Vancura is a student at CNH Industrial, where he studies manufacturing engineering.
Vancura’s new 2018 Cadillac CT6, which is listed at $72,515, is a sizable upgrade over his current car. The Caddy comes equipped with Super Cruise, GM’s semi-autonomous driver assistance feature, which enables drivers to remove their hands from the steering wheel during extended highway driving.
“Well, I actually drove here in my little sister’s car, which is a 2006 Grand Prix,” Vancura said. “That’s mine also, just a different model.”
The new CT6 is “a little bit of a step up,” Vancura admits.
Prior to winning the new CT6, Vancura said that the biggest prize he had ever won was “a candy bar, maybe, in high school.”
The drawing was between 25 different possible winners. Vancura was entered in the drawing after donating to the United Way, which he had done since starting at CNH Industrial.
“I figured I might as well start off my career at Case strong, and help start supporting it,” he said. By donating, he felt he could help the next generation of students, and that “it just makes a world of difference later on.”
