Spring Cleaning “Celebrity” Surprise for Goodwill Donors on Friday, April 17

Goodwill of Southern Nevada

Spring Cleaning “Celebrity” Surprise for Goodwill Donors on Friday, April 17

Fort Apache & Flamingo Drive-Thru Donation Center from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.


Expect donors to do a double-take. (Seriously).

Donors who drop off items at the Fort Apache & Flamingo Goodwill Store & Donation Drive-Thru, located at 2550 S. Fort Apache Road (at Flamingo), will be in for a “celebrity” surprise on Friday, April 17 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

That’s because the donation ambassador receiving their spring cleaning donations may look a lot like… Steven Tyler.

The hit tribute show “Legends in Concert” at Flamingo Las Vegas, which recently won Best Tribute Show in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Best of Las Vegas poll, will help collect donations at one of the busiest Goodwill Donation Drive-thrus in the valley, in an effort to remind people to take some time this spring to clean out their closets, cabinets and bookshelves.

“We think donors will do a double-take,” said Chris Matlock, vice president of retail and operations at Goodwill of Southern Nevada. “And then they’ll pull out their cell phones for a photo! Having a ‘celebrity’ donation ambassador is a great way to remind people to declutter and donate items they are no longer using. A big thank you to Legends in Concert for this partnership.”

This spring cleaning drive kicks off Goodwill providing donors with vouchers offering a reduced price on Legends tickets. Legends is currently offering all Las Vegas locals $9.95 show tickets – the same price tickets were in 1983 when “Legends in Concert” debuted. As a thank you to Goodwill’s donation ambassadors for all their hard work, “Legends in Concert” donated concert tickets to all of them.

Donations to Goodwill are critical as the sale of donated items in Goodwill stores funds the nonprofit’s life changing job placement and training programs. Last year, Goodwill of Southern Nevada helped more than 2,300 people find employment at a variety of businesses. For more on Goodwill of Southern Nevada www.Goodwill.Vegas.

Review & Photos ~ Carlos’n Charlie’s Las Vegas



Carlos’n Charlie’s recently opened their first west-coast restaurant in the Las Vegas Flamingo Hotel. We spent a Saturday evening there and completely enjoyed it. The food was really good and it’s just a fun place to be. The music was hopping and the servers and bartenders interact with the DJ performing dances and skits. It was entertaining and often hilarious.

We opted for the quiet booth in the corner this night but there definitely was a party going on outside on the patio and the inside bar looked pretty happening too. Our server was Sam and she was funny, quick witted and humorous. She begged us to drink lots of alcohol but you know we didn’t. Iced tea and Lemonade is more our style. We had the Super Mix appetizer platter and we couldn’t go into a Mexican restaurant without some chips-n-salsa. The chef even whipped up some Habanero salsa for us….. Twice. Yeah we like it hot.

For dinner we had the Chicken Crispy Flautas, Charlie’s Chimichanga, Carne Asada Burrito, Peep & Oink & Shrimp BBQ and of course Charlie’s Tacos. The portions were good sized, arrived quickly and were devoured almost as quickly. Everything was sizzling well with the habanero salsa the chef made for us. The crew there was not only entertaining but very attentive as well. We were constantly checked on and had everything we wanted and needed.

Dessert time, one of our favorites. We ordered coffee while waiting for our Caramel Crepes, Banana Chimichanga, and Awesome Brownie. What a great assortment of sweetness. We finished it all. By this time we were pretty full and gave in to Carlos’n Charlie’s.

All in all this was a fun evening, very entertaining with lots of good food. The Flamingo is a great resort with everything a visitor would want. Check out The Flamingo and be sure to go to Carlos’n Charlie’s. Tell them Vegas24seven sent you!

About Carlos’n Charlie’s
Carlos’n Charlie’s makes its Sin City debut inside the Flamingo Las Vegas. Great for all ages, this establishment offers an experience guests will remember for a lifetime. With constant entertainment such as dancing on chairs, singing, skits and more, the dedicated staff will make sure each and every customer leaves happy and full! Every patron will get to experience the flair bartenders, silly waiters and great food each time they visit. Carlos’n Charlie’s just asks patrons to PLEASE not feed their waiters.
