The band announced earlier today via Twitter that they raised more than $2.1 million for kids with cancer and their families. Prior to their live performance, the night was filled with a VIP reception, red carpet, silent auction, and more. 

Aside from the "Natural" band mates, the cast of truTV's Impractical Jokers, Criss Angel, and the Las Vegas Golden Knights were also in attendance. The foundation came together after a fan of Imagine Dragons named Tyler Robinson was diagnosed with Rhabdomyoscarcoma. 

According to Billboard, "The band grew close to Robinson and after he passed away they made a point to attend and perform at the gala every year, making sure to always play "It's Time" in Robinson's honor."
