Phish's WaterWheel Foundation and the Mimi Fishman Foundation have teamed together once again with an on-line charity auction featuring ticket packages for the first leg of the Phish 2012 Summer tour.
Phish kicks off their 2012 Summer Tour on June 7 in Worcester and concludes the leg on July 8 in Saratoga Springs. Stops along the way include Deer Creek, Alpine Valley, and more, as well as a 3-night run in Atlantic City.
The auction also includes the Hurricane Dress that Phish drummer Jon Fishman wore during the VT Flood Recovery Benefit concert at the Champlain Valley Expo. The dress is signed by Jon as well. The funds raised for the dress will go to the WaterWheel Vermont Flood Recovery Fund at the VT Community Foundation.
In addition the auction features a very special Strangefolk reunion package. The items featured in the package were donated in honor of Patrick Gallagher and will benefit the Adirondack ASPCA and the Humane Society of Chittenden County.
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 on-line auction is currently live with the bidding coming to close on Monday, March 26.
