As part of honoring its commitment to charitable giving, INSOMNIAC made a $115,000 donation to five charities: four LAS VEGAS charities as well as a contribution to a national initiative with ROCK THE VOTE. Funds raised through the annual ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL (EDC), LAS VEGAS, helped INSOMNIAC contribute $30,000 toward ROCK THE VOTE in support of SPIN THE VOTE as well as $25,000 each to the CLARK COUNTY School-Community Partnership Program, UNIVERSITY OF NEVADA RENO (UNR) Foundation's Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund and the Injured Police Officers Fund/LAS VEGAS. An additional $10,000 was gifted to the Speedway Children's Charity/LAS VEGAS Chapter.
"I'm so grateful that for the second year in a row the success of this year's ELECTRIC DAISY CARNIVAL/LAS VEGAS is able to directly benefit these amazing organizations, each of which provides unique and vital services to the community," said INSOMNIAC Founder/CEO PASQUALE ROTELLA. "Each of these groups touches our event in one way or another. Whether it's through encouraging youth to participate in the arts or educating our fans to become politically active, we’re honored to give back to LAS VEGAS as well as to those who help make our event a success."
