Impersonator Brought Hundreds of Gifts and Songs to Neglected,
Abandoned and Abused Children at Child Haven of Las Vegas
brought hundreds of toys and gifts for all of the children at
Las Vegas' Child Haven, a safe haven/refuge center for abused,
abandoned and neglected children, ages 3 days to 17 years old.
"Trent's holiday spirit brought so much joy to the kids at Child
Haven and his encouraging words for the kids to find and follow
their dreams was a great inspiration. The kids singing a few
of Elvis' favorite songs, like 'Blue Christmas' and 'Hound Dog'
was incredible!" stated Child Haven Manager Lou Palma.
Carlini, considered to be the No. 1 Elvis impersonator
in the world, rock and rolled with children and nurses
at Child Haven of Clark County Las Vegas' very own, Trent
Carlini, considered to be the world's best Elvis stylist
(performer) came to say, "Thank you. Thank you very much."
though the kids are under safe, protective custody, Carlini
visited the center with members of his staff to bring joy,
laughter, gifts and other types of goodies plus sang a few
songs to the children and to the nurses and staff that care
for the children. Stated Carlini, "Many times, it's the nurses
and caretakers of these children who are so often overlooked;
and if anyone has ever had a child in the hospital, or away
from them for any length of time, it's these special type
of people that you want to acknowledge, specifically, for
their unselfish love and tireless dedication in keeping the
children safe, comfortable and happy, and we hope that we
brought them a little joy during the holidays. To them we
say, 'Thank you so very much.'"
why Carlini does these kind gestures, he replied, "My band
and I had a great run this year at the Las Vegas Hilton International
where the King of Rock 'n' Roll himself performed his biggest
concerts including his famous '68 comeback show; and, because
we had literally thousands of people from Las Vegas and from
around the world who came to support us, every year, we show
our great appreciation by donating gifts to children who are
in need, and we do this on our audiences' behalf." Joe Esposito,
Elvis Presley's personal right-hand man and also a friend
of Carlini, added, "Trent is not only a great performer with
an uncanny resemblance to Elvis in many ways; Trent, just
like Elvis, is also a great humanitarian.
those who are privileged to meet Trent and the giver that
he is, let me emphasize that he will touch your heart. Trent
is just that beautiful of a man." "We appreciate Trent's love,
pure heart and incredible joy that he brought to our kids,
nurses, and staff," said Palma. "We're excited about his visit
and on behalf of all of the kids and team at Child Haven,
we say, 'Thank you, thank you very much.'" (Almost
