Earlier this year, an economic impact report revealed that Insomniac‘s Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas has generated an estimated $1.3 billion for the local economy. However, bringing business to the community isn’t the only way Insomniac is helping local residents.
In fact, did you know that $1 from every ticket sold ($10 for each guest list attendee) for an Insomniac festival is allocated for the company’s Charitable Giving Initiative? Recently, Insomniac founder and CEO, Pasquale Rotella, announced the 2016 recipient of the Electric Daisy Charity, The Shade Tree of Las Vegas. A non-profit in the Vegas area since 1990, The Shade Tree provides relief for local women, children and pets impacted by domestic violence and crisis.
✨I’m proud to announce the 2016 #ElectricDaisyCharity recipient: @ShadeTreeVegas! ❤️🌳 A nonprofit in Las Vegas, The Shade Tree is dedicated to improving the lives of local women, children & pets affected by domestic violence & crisis. 🙏 More info on #EDCWeek Charity Auctions will be available 🔜 April 25.
In the announcement, Rotella also hyped April 25th, the date more information on EDC Week Charity Auctions will become available. Along with The Shade Tree, Insomniac has worked with numerous other Vegas area organizations, such as:
