Insomniac donated $75,000 to three Las Vegas organizations, honoring the commitment to charitable giving in the communities that host its music festivals. For the third year in a row, funds raised through the annual Electric Daisy Carnival helped Insomniac contribute $25,000 each toward the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, Injured Police Officers Fund – Las Vegas and the University of Nevada School of Medicine, specifically for its Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund.
Leaders from each of the three organizations, along with 50 local area youth, came together at the Downtown Boys & Girls Club where Rotella presented each group with a $25,000 donation. Minddie Lloyd accepted the funds on behalf of the Injured Police Officers Fund; Dr. Dale Carrison was present to represent the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada was represented by CEO Ken Rubeli, who was joined by 50 youth from the Downtown Club to accept the oversized check.
The 17th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival took place June 21-23 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway with an estimated 345,000 attendees joining in on the fun throughout the three-day festival. The 1,000-acre complex was transformed into a fully immersive audiovisual adventure with more than 500 musical acts, theatrical performers, full-scale carnival rides, elaborate décor, state-of-the-art lighting and sound production, pyrotechnics and innovate stage designs along with nightly firework displays.
Insomniac’s Charitable Giving Initiative donates $1 per ticket transaction and $10 per guest list attendee to charitable organizations in the local communities where the festivals are held. The past two years, Insomniac has donated more than $190,000 to local and regional organizations following EDC Las Vegas.
