Something Wicked Festival donates $10k to aid families of firefighters and police killed in line of duty

Over 20,000 fans gathered at Houston’s second annual Something Wicked Festival this past October.

And while the night was filled with plenty of dancing and celebration, their attendance is also making a lasting positive impact on the local community.

Last Wednesday, Something Wicked producers Disco Donnie Presents and NightCulture donated $10,000 of festival profits to benefit The 100 Club.

The local Houston organization aids dependents of firefighters and law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

“Our number one priority is our fan’s safety, and we’re proud to give back and support those who put their lives at risk to protect our community and country,” said Donnie Estopinal, CEO of Disco Donnie Presents, in a press release.

The 100 Club also provides life-protecting equipment and education for current firefighters and police.

We are extremely honored and proud to be able to support our local Houston firefighters and police officers through this donation,” said Michael Long, CEO of NightCulture Inc., in a press release.

“Their tremendous sacrifice and dedication for our city is truly appreciated.

Disco Donnie Presents has donated over $40,000 to four philanthropies over the past year, including The RICH House of Tampa, The Bob Moog Foundation, the Texas Red Cross, and now the 100 Club in Houston.
