Mimi Fishman Foundation Donates to Tornado Related Charities & Launches New "Phishy" Auction

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

The Mimi Fishman Foundation announces two donations were issued April 29 to the Tuscaloosa, AL area to help the tornado victims. The Foundation donated $2,500 to Hands On Birminghams Disaster Relief program and $2,500 to the Greater Birmingham Humane Societys Disaster Responseprogram.

In addition the Foundation recently hosted a pair of auctions that raised over $6,600 for Rock The Earthand over $5,100 for Phishs WaterWheel Foundation.

The Foundation also just launched a new charity auction that predominantly features items donated by Phish. Two items are certain to generate quite a bit of interest, one of which includes joining Phish drummer Jon Fishman for lunch, the other is the actual black kick drumhead with Phish logo and signed by all members of Phish. In addition the auction features signed drumsticks and drumheads used during Phish 2010 shows.

The on-line auction is currently live with the bidding coming to close on Tuesday, May 24.
