This week’s elevator is Charles Ressler a well known resident of our very own Las Vegas. I have never had the pleasure of meeting him (as much as I’d love to), but let’s talk about the awesome meaningful things he’s doing with his life.
First Friday’s Charles Ressler before he was with First Friday was a broadway actor, a Tony Hsieh associate, and a public-relations/special-events/marketing manager for the Bergdorf Goodman department store, owner of a music-production/management firm- among other things . As of late Ressler has made large contributions to the Downtown Project to revitalize downtown Las Vegas, and breakdown the facade of Vegas being home to only debauchery, gambling, drugs, etc. Ressler has also started #dreamMaker to try to help everyone’s dream come true.
You’re probably thinking “Dreams coming true that’s the corniest thing I have ever heard!” But the truth is making dreams come true is really what #dreamMaker is about. You tweet your hopes, dreams, aspirations, or whatever you like to call your thing with feathers with the #dreamMaker, and Charles will try to help you not only set goals, but achieve them too. As Charles Ressler said,
There’s what the world is and what it can be, and I choose to be in the ‘can be.’ I can’t live in a world if it’s not about potential.

Back to First Friday. First Friday is an event where everyone is welcome to appreciate all sorts of art forms in Las Vegas. You’ll find visual and performing arts, music, food, and new people to connect with. The event gives local artists a platform to share their work, to sell their products, make a living, and to connect with other like-minded people in a common place. Many local artists get a boost from First Friday and many local businesses depend on this day every month. There is really no better example of culture and community coming together in Las Vegas than First Friday. It’s a great place for family and friends to gather and have a fun time.
Overall Charles Ressler is regarded as a caring individual with boundless joy when it comes to helping people. Make sure you click the links to check out Charles and everything else going on in Vegas.
