Insomniac Events is in the news again, for a good cause. They put aside $120,000 for local charities in Las Vegas, continuing their tradition of doing so every year.
Three local charities benefited from the funding this year; Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund and Injured Police Officers Fund. Each organisation will get $40,000 each, made possible because of $1 per general ticket and $10 per VIP ticket extracted to make this fundraising possible.
Via Global Dance Electronic, Insomniac boss Pasquale Rotella had this to say: “Thanks to all the incredible Headliners who celebrated EDC’s 20th anniversary this year, we were able to collect thousands of dollars in ticket and guest list donations for Insomniac Cares. Las Vegas has done so much for us since 2011. It’s an amazing feeling to give back to some of the groups that do good work in the community. I’m proud to present funds to Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, Injured Police Officers Fund, and Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund.”
It’s good to see the dance music industry coming out and supporting such causes.
