Special Appearance at the Delta Gamma Center!

Friday, August 31, 2012

Monday, August 27 was a special day for the Foundation. Taking advantage of a day off in Phish's tour schedule, Jon Fishman (Phish), Jon's wife, mother-in-law, and children, along with Matty Beck (WaterWheel), Lee Scott (Jon's drum tech), John Langenstein (Phish Director of Security), and David Shulman (Mimi Fishman Foundation) paid a visit to the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments (DGC).

During the visit the MFF donated $5,000 to the DGC, increasing the grand total donated to the Center to over $160,000. Jon Fishman also sang songs with the Delta Gamma children and led them in a drum circle.

It was so heartwarming to see the wonderful work the Center does with the kids (ages birth to three).

Mimi Fishman Foundation On-Line Charity Auction Features Jon Fishman X Dress

Thursday, February 9, 2012

The Mimi Fishman Foundation has launched a new on-line charity auction that features many show used drumsticks and drumheads from Phishs 2011 shows. Every stick and head is dated as well as signed by Phish drummer Jon Fishman.

The headliner of the auction is the dress Jon Fishman wore during the Sept 4, 2011 show at Dicks Sporting Good Park in Commerce City, CO. While Fishman traditionally wears (on stage) a mu-mu style dress with Os (doughnuts) on Sept 4, 2011 he surprised everyone by wearing a dress with Xs instead of Os. The dress which was only worn during this one show is featured on the auction.

Proceeds from this auction will benefit the Delta Gamma Center for Children With Visual Impairments specifically to support the newly created Mimi Fishman Adventure Camp which is coordinated by Delta Gamma and offers a safe camp environment for visually impaired children.

The on-line on-line auction is currently live with the bidding coming to close on Thursday, March 1.

To view and/or bid on the auction, as well as read about the charities the auction supports, please visit the Mimi Fishman Foundation Auction Page.
