The Clark County School-Community Partnership Program, The Smith Center for the Performing Arts and the Injured Police Officers Fund – Las Vegas each received checks for $25,000 at a presentation held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

“This year’s festival was one of the best in Insomniac history, and we are incredibly appreciative of the Las Vegas community joining together to welcome us and assist with a memorable event,” said Pasquale Rotella, Insomniac’s CEO and founder. “We are thrilled to be able to present $25,000 donations to key organizations that will only help improve the city where our fans and partners reside.”

The Clark County School-Community Partnership Program connects business and community resources with schools to enrich the educational experience and increase student achievement. The Clark County School-Community Partnership Program began in 1983 as a pilot program of seven schools partnered with seven businesses. Since that time, it has grown to hundreds of partnerships with programs that range from kindergarten to twelfth grade, from tutorial programs to scholarships, from science activities to fine arts programs. Insomniac’s partnership will help support, supplement and complement Arts Education Programs in Clark County public schools.

The Smith Center for the Performing Arts is a public/private partnership, opening in 2012, which will become the centerpiece of cultural life in Las Vegas. In December 2010, The John F. Kennedy Center chose The Smith Center as the fourth partner city for Any Given Child, a program that will create a long-range arts education plan for Las Vegas area students. The program will incorporate existing resources of the Las Vegas school system, along with those of local arts organizations and the Kennedy Center to ensure that every child has the opportunity to receive a solid and meaningful arts education.

The Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) was formed in October 1982 to help reduce the financial burden suffered by police officers and their families in the event of a line of duty injury or death by providing monetary assistance to these officers and their families. IPOF currently assists over 8,000 officers and their families in Nevada.

Insomniac held the 15th Annual Electric Daisy Carnival June 24-26, 2011 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, marking a major success for North America’s largest electronic dance music festival with an estimated 230,000 attendees, more than 100 electronic artists and 430 performance artists, during the three day festival’s debut in Las Vegas. Insomniac will be making additional donations to other charities in the upcoming weeks to finalize distribution of the funds raised at Electric Daisy Carnival.
