|Insomniac CEO and Founder Pasquale Rotella Addresses the Crowd|
For all the crowds, freakish costumes and profits that Electric Daisy Carnival attracted during its second round in Las Vegas, we've also learned that the event's promoters at Insomniac Events did some solid good outside the EDM community when we weren't looking.
For every one of the dance music fans who attended throughout the three-day festival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway from June 8-10, Insomniac's charitable donations gave $1 per ticket transaction and $10 per guest list attendee to charitable organizations in the Las Vegas communities for a second time in a row.
The Clark County School - Community Partnership Program, Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, Speedway Children's Charity - Las Vegas Chapter and Injured Police Officers Fund all benefited from the $115,000 donation including an additional initiative with Rock the Vote called Spin the Vote. Representatives from all of these organizations as well as Insomniac's CEO and Founder Pasquale Rotella were in attendance at the official check presentation held yesterday at the Cosmopolitan Hotel.More »
