This week, Insomniac announced that donations of $40,000 each would be made to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, and the Injured Police Officers Fund. Funds were generated from Insomniac’s $1 per ticket and $10 per guest list attendee allocation for the 20th installation of EDC Las Vegas.
“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,” said Pasquale Rotella, Founder and CEO of Insomniac. “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.”
The Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF) provides services to improve the quality of life for critically ill children and their families. Insomniac’s donation will benefit NCCF’s Project A.R.K. which houses the financial, educational and emotional support services offered free of charge.
“We are so thankful to have been chosen as one of the fortunate charities to have benefited from this amazing effort by so many,” said Jeff Gordon, President and CEO of NCCF. Pasquale, and the staff of Insomniac, you are simply amazing and we only hope you all realize the very positive impact you have made in our community, and to the children and families we serve at the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.”
The Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) reduces the financial burden suffered by police officers and their families in the event of a line of duty injury or death. IPOF assists thousands of offers in Nevada by providing monetary assistance to them and their loved ones.
Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund is an established gift fund used to support resident research activities within the University of Nevada School of Medicine Foundation’s Emergency Medicine department. The physicians that planned and directed the care for EDC Las Vegas are local physicians, involved in the teaching and training of emergency medicine residents for the University of Nevada School of Medicine.
Both the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund and IPOF have been recipients of Insomniac Cares donations for all six years EDC has been held in Las Vegas.
