Two Phish related charities – Phish’s own WaterWheel Foundation and The Mimi Fishman Foundation have teamed together once again on an on-line auction with 100% of the proceeds helping victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The organizations are now accepting bids on several Phish New Years ticket packages. The shows – which take place on 4 consecutive evenings at the end of December – sold out quickly. Phish fans now have the opportunity to score tickets while at the same time helping to support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The auction can be found at the Mimi Fishman Foundation website – specifically at www.mimifishman.org/auctions
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 December 3,2012.
