Over the past two years, Insomniac has helped make a positive impact in the lives of countless people in need through our annual EDC Week Charity Auction, which raises funds for local organizations and causes. This year, Insomniac has teamed up once again with global e-commerce partner eBay for Charity for our third annual EDC Week Charity Auction to help raise funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. We’re officially kicking off the auction today (Monday, Mach 27), allowing Headliners to bid on the first wave of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities surrounding EDC Las Vegas.
Headliners, you can start your bidding now! The first phase of this year’s EDC Week Charity Auction ends Thursday, April 6, at noon PT.
The first phase of the auction offers Headliners new, unparalleled access to this year’s EDC Las Vegas. Auction winners have the chance to take home a variety of exclusive packages and offers: a ride across the festival grounds on the Bass Wench art car; an intimate hangout with Insomniac Founder and CEO Pasquale Rotella in his SkyDeck cabana; an opportunity to tag the wasteLAND stage; and much more. Check out some of this year’s amazing auction items below.
In 2015, Insomniac launched the first-ever EDC Week Charity Auction, in partnership with eBay for Charity and the leading companies in Las Vegas, and successfully raised approximately $70,000 for dance education and enrichment program Culture Shock Las Vegas. In 2016, the initiative raised more than $120,000 for local Las Vegas women and children’s shelter the Shade Tree.
This year, we’re aligning with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada, whose vision reflects Insomniac’s core values: a celebration of community, self-expression, and creativity, as evidenced at EDC Las Vegas every year. The funds raised during this year’s EDC Week Charity Auction will go toward a new art program that will give children at each of the organization’s clubhouses in Southern Nevada an outlet to express themselves within a safe and accepting atmosphere, the same principles Insomniac fosters at all our events globally.
Check out some of the packages available in the first round of the EDC Week Charity Auction:
