"I've always been a dedicated Craver, and I'm thrilled that my passion for White Castle's food is sending me to Atlanta for the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards," said Ray. "This will be a day that I'll never forget, and I have White Castle and Sprite® to thank for it."

Ray fulfills her Crave for White Castle's Loaded Fries at her favorite Castle in Valley Station on Dixie Highway in Louisville. However, she had no idea what fortune awaited her this summer.

"I know I don't have the best of luck with stuff like this, but you all proved me wrong! It was super easy to enter the contest from my phone. The hardest part of it was getting the code off of the cup," Ray said.

She is most excited to see Miguel and Pharrell Williams perform at the show. The BET Hip Hop Awards, hosted this year by Uncle Snoop, will air October 15 at 8 p.m. EST.

The prize was part of White Castle's summer Slider-bration of all things important to Craver Nation: Great food, ice cold Sprite® and the most popular music. In addition to the grand prize, Cravers were also able to win free music downloads and food.

"We are excited to partner with Sprite® and bring our Cravers even more of what they love," said Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. "These rewards are just one of the many ways that White Castle demonstrates its dedication to the Craver Nation."
