Insomniac once again proved its dedication and commitment to the Las Vegas community. With more than 60 auction items up for grabs during this year’s EDC Week Charity Auction, fans from around the world were able to bid on unique items or special festival perks and simultaneously raise a whopping $119,941 for a local charity.
The charity chosen for the 2016 auction, the Shade Tree of Las Vegas, is a nonprofit organization aiding women, children, and pets that have been affected by domestic abuse and crisis. The generosity of this year’s program has touched the hearts of their fans and the community alike.
The funds raised by Insomniac will help redesign the Shade Tree’s Children’s Activity Center (CAC), a space dedicated to providing a safe and constructive learning environment for children served at the shelter.
On top of that $120,000 from this year’s auction, Insomniac has also donated funds—$1 from each EDC Vegas ticket sold – to a variety of local foundations through the Charitable Giving Initiative. This year’s recipients included the Emergency Medicine Resident Research Fund, the Injured Police Officer’s Fund, and the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.
