Mimi Fishman Foundation News (PHISH, PHISH, PHISH)
The WaterWheel Foundation and the Mimi Fishman Foundation have teamed together for a “reprise” of their recently completed on-line charity auction. While the previous auction featured a package representing each tour stop on the 1st leg of the 2010 Phish Summer tour, the new auction covers the tours 2nd half. Every tour stop multiple nights including fan favorites such as Alpine Valley, Deer Creek, and Jones Beach, as well as a special 3 night run at the Greek Theater in Berkeley. A very special run in Telluride places an exclamation point on the tour.
All proceeds raised will mutually benefit the Foundations, both of which have strong ties to the band Phish. The WaterWheel Foundation was created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band’s various charitable activities. The Mimi Fishman Foundation was established in1999 by Miriam "Mimi" Fishman (the late mother of Phish drummer Jon Fishman) and David Shulman, as a vehicle to raise funds for various charities important to Mimi.
The on-line auction is currently live with the bidding coming to close on Monday, July 19.
In addition to a pair of reserved tickets per show, the auction packages include “bonus” items including posters by famed poster artist Jim Pollock and signed by the band, a rare David Welker print, etc. .
