WHY: As part of an annual partnership and in the spirit of giving back during the holidays, Eldorado Resorts Reno will be donating the proceeds from ticket sales for the Dec. 1 showing of “The Unbelievables Christmas Extravaganza” to the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army serves the needy 365 days of the year with food, clothing, household goods, rent, utilities and more. In addition, they operate a 70-bed drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that is free of cost to participants. They serve the biggest concentration of people during the holidays where in 2016 they served more than 1,400 families with holiday food boxes and toys for more than 4,300 children. Major Charles Fowler, County Coordinator for The Salvation Army, explained that the income they receive from the Eldorado show is one of the largest single corporate donations they receive during the year. “It is a very crucial part of our fund-raising efforts,” said Fowler.
From the producers of the Broadway smash hit “The Illusionists” and “Cirque Le Noir,” the multi-million dollar production of “The Unbelievables Christmas Extravaganza” will dazzle at the Eldorado this holiday season. This amazing family spectacle features “America’s Got Talent” finalists Sara and her dog Hero, spellbinding illusionists, breathtaking cirque artists and world-class singers, dancers and variety performers. It appears at the Eldorado Theatre now through Dec. 31. For tickets, please visit EldoradoReno.com.
