Christmas Eve 2014 was one holiday that Ashley Bates will not soon forget.  Why? Well, the Trans Siberian Orchestra's Al Pitrelli called Ashley on Christmas Eve to let her know that she had won a trip to Wacken, Germany to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Savatage.

Ashley and three guests will be headed to Hamburg, Germany this July. We will cover the airfare, five nights' hotel accommodations, passes to the sold out 2015 Wacken Open Air festival, ground transportation to and from the festival grounds each day, and $2,000 cash.

Ashley was definitely surprised when Al Pitrelli called her to let her know that she had won the contest. "Thank you so much! I'm so excited. I'm shaking over here. It's going to be a lot of fun," she said.
