The WaterWheel Foundation and the Mimi Fishman Foundation have teamed together for the 2nd time in two months with an on-line charity auction featuring ticket packages. While the past auction was for the first portion of the Phish 2011 Summer tour, the new auction features tickets packages for the second portion of the Phish 2011 Summer tour, including Phish’s own festival, Super Ball IX.
Super Ball IX will take place before the second leg of the tour begins on July 4 weekend in Watkins Glenn, NY. Phish then kicks off the 2011 Summer Tour’s second leg August 5th with a return visit back to the amazing Gorge Amphitheatre. The tour continues with shows at the Hollywood Bowl, Lake Tahoe, Chicago, and Denver.
All proceeds raised will benefit Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation. The WaterWheel Foundation was created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band’s various charitable activities. The Mimi Fishman Foundation was established in 1999 by Miriam "Mimi" Fishman (the late mother of Phish drummer Jon Fishman) and David Shulman – and was created 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 Wednesday, June 22.
