SANDY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) It was a Utah grandma’s worst nightmare. She won tickets to Cavalia from Good4Utah, but thought it was a scam, so she said she didn’t want them.
When she realized here mistake, the tickets have already been given away. But we couldn’t let her not see the big show! The folks at Odysseo had something even better in mind.
“So today we are going to give you VIP tickets… So the four tickets that you are getting include dinner, drinks and the stable VIP tour. But for you tonight we are going to bring you backstage after the show” “Wow! That’s so nice” “So these are your tickets.”
The special moment for Sarah Ostler almost didn’t happen. Her daughter Rachel entered her into our contest to win tickets to Cavalia, but forgot to tell her mom about it, so when Sarah got that winning phone call…
“I said what’s Cavalia? Because I get calls all the time because I’m retired and I get calls all the time or scams so I was suspicious,” said Sarah.
“Then she called me and told me what happened and I said mom I entered you in to that so you could win tickets to the horse show I told you about. And then she felt horrible because she missed out on the tickets,” said Rachel Fullmer, daughter.
Good4Utah and Cavalia to the rescue. We wanted Sarah to have those tickets to take her grandchildren and Cavalia Odysseo wanted her to have the VIP Backstage Experience.
Sarah got to see every element of the show behind the show. From the 65 horses to the place where all the magic comes together off the state. The Utah mother and grandmother who lost her husband just last year definitely got the start treatment.
“She’s been through a lot the last year and we are in town through June 20th and we thought it was a great idea for her to see the show.,” said Kim Huard, Odysseo publicist.
“And here I am, it’s like a fairytale,” said Sarah.
What all started as somewhat of a nightmare, thankfully ended up as
“A dream come true, I really wanted my kids to see it, my mom to see it but I wasn’t in a position to do it so thank you Channel 4,”said Rachel.
