We’re officially underway with the 2017 EDC Week Charity Auction, where we’re offering exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities on which Headliners can bid. Your reaction to the initial wave of experiences has been super buzzing, and now we’re kicking things up several notches with the second phase of the auction, which offers 60 unparalleled artist-related experiences.
Bidding for phase two is open now through Thursday, May 11, at noon PT.
The third annual EDC Week Charity Auction—in partnership with eBay for Charity and presented by Insomniac Cares, Insomniac’s charitable giving initiative—is raising funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada. All proceeds generated through the auction are going toward the creation of art programs for all of the organization’s 14 clubs across Southern Nevada, while also providing a safe and accepting place for the participating children to express themselves freely through creativity, the same principles Insomniac fosters at all our events globally.
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.
As EDC celebrates 21 years Under the Electric Sky this June in Las Vegas, we’re teaming up with some of your favorite artists to offer Headliners a chance to bid on these priceless experiences, including Hardwell, Ephwurd, Datsik, Thomas Jack, Tommy Trash and more.
