Rotella was there to present in person $35,000 to three different local charities, which for a grand total contribution of $105k this year. While numbers showing total earnings for this year's edition have yet to be released, Insomniac confirmed that the donation came straight from the 2015 festival's revenue. The trio of charities makeup the HELP organization of Southern Nevada, University of Nevada School of Medicine and Injured Police Officers Fund.
