LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– The seventh annual Rise Up Gala raised over $2.6 million for the Tyler Robinson Foundation, Imagine Dragons’ nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis.

Hosted by actor and comedian Joel McHale, the sold-out event was held at the outdoor pavilion at the Wynn Las Vegas and was attended by 660 guests.

During the evening, lead singer Dan Reynolds pledged a $50,000 donation to TRF if a guest was willing to sing “Radioactive” on stage. Cooper Sandoval, a TRF Ambassador from Reno, took the mic and performed the band’s hit single, without missing a beat and bringing the entire pavilion to their feet.
