In typical Pasquale Rotella fashion, Insomniac is giving back to the community that hosted one of the company's events. This time, Insomniac is giving $90,000 of their EDC Las Vegas revenue to three different Las Vegas charities.
The Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada, the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, and the Injured Police Officers Fund will each receive a donation of $30,000. This donation is a part of Insomniac's Charitable Giving Initiative. Ever since Insomniac moved EDC from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 2011, they have donated $325,000 to local and regional organizations.
Insomniac will present the funds raised for the three organizations at an event on October 27. The event will be held at the LINQ Fountain Stage in Las Vegas. Rotella will be on hand to present the funds to Brian Knudsen of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, Dr. Dale Carrison of the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, and Minddie Lloyd of the Injured Police Officers Fund. Some of the youth who attend Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada will be in attendance as well.
This comes after Rotella donated $15,000 to Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and $25,000 to the non-profit LifeBeat in New York. EDC New York had 50,000 attendees per day this year.
