The auction will benefit the Station Family Fund, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization founded by survivors of the Station Nightclub fire. The Station Family Fund is committed to providing survivor relief, including costs of ongoing treatment and rehabilitation for victims and basic home needs for their families.

The auction, which will run through April 3rd, can be found at http://www.mimifishman.org/auctions/.

A wide array of amazing musical memorabilia includes signed items by Crosby Stills & Nash, Def Leppard, Paul Rogers (Bad Company), Extreme, Gretchen Wilson, Boston members Tom Scholz and Gary Pihl, Tesla, Stryper, Winger, Twisted Sister, and much more.

Prevalent in the auction are the many guitars signed by the musicians who performed at the "Phoenix Rising" benefit concert at Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island on February 25, 2008.

The Station Family Fund is an all-volunteer, 501 c 3 recognized, tax exempt, nonprofit organization founded to offer assistance and relief to people directly affected by the fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island.  100 people perished, close to 200 were severely injured, and more than 60 children lost one or both parents in the horrific fire on Feb 20, 2003.  Station Family Fund information can be found at http://www.stationfamilyfund.org.

Todd King, a survivor himself of the fire, is the President of the Station Family Fund.  "It's vital we don't forget the families left behind," said King.  "The Station Family Fund was formed to help those families, as well as the survivors. The Mimi Fishman Foundation has been instrumental in helping our organization raise funds through past on-line auctions and we are grateful for their incredible support."

He added, "The guitars are amazing."

In a related note, VH1 and VH1 Classic will simultaneously premiere a one-hour special of the "Phoenix Rising" concert on both their networks on Easter Sunday, March 23, 2008. Entitled, "VH1 Classic Presents: AFTERMATH: The Station Fire Five Years Later," the special is a continuation of the effort to raise awareness about the plight of the Station fire survivors. It includes both live performances from the February 25th concert and interviews with some of the victims that survived.
