A portion of proceeds donated to “Where Angels Play Foundation” in victims’ honor
LAS VEGAS, December 10, 2013 – The cast of HISTORY’s “Pawn Stars” and Rachel’s Kitchen Downtown at the Ogden have teamed up for a special fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 14, the one year anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The two were brought together by a mutual friend who works with fallen teacher Vicki Soto’s father and the Where Angels Play Foundation, an organization building playgrounds in each of the 26 victims’ honor as a way to celebrate their lives.
Carlos Soto, Vicki’s father, recently came to Las Vegas to thank the “Pawn Stars” for their donation last year and brought the founder of the Where Angels Play Foundation with him. The men also stopped in to the restaurant that day to meet Kathy Wilson, partner of Rachel’s Kitchen Downtown at The Ogden. The “Pawn Stars” and the employees of Gold & Silver Pawn are frequent patrons of Rachel’s Kitchen Downtown and, after learning more about the organization, thought this would be a great way to team up during the holiday season for a good cause.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat., Dec. 14, Rachel’s Kitchen Downtown at the Ogden, located at 150 Las Vegas Boulevard North, will donate a portion of their sales to the Where Angels Play Foundation.
Richard “The Old Man” Harrison will be signing autographs from Noon to 12:30 p.m. Frequent expert and Clark County Museum Administrator Mark Hall-Patton will also sign autographs during the event and other “Pawn Stars” cast members may stop by as time permits to meet those supporting the cause. Autographed memorabilia will be auctioned off live and raffle drawings will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with 100% of their proceeds donated to Where Angels Play.
For more information, please call Rachel’s Kitchen Downtown at the Ogden at 702-371-5045.
