Phish WaterWheel Foundation To Host Pre-Show Event In San Francisco
Phish‘s WaterWheel Foundation, the organization founded in 1997 to oversee the band’s various charitable activities, will host a pre-show celebration at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco ahead of the band’s July 19th performance. The WaterWheel team paired up with promoters Another Planet to present similar events in 2012, 2013 and 2014 which led to the collective donation of just over $114,000 to the non-profits that were hosted.
This year’s event will support Larkin Street Youth Services, the leading nonprofit in San Francisco empowering homeless and at-risk youth to get off the street by offering them confidence, skills, opportunities, and hope. Lark Street has reached over 75,00 vulnerable young people With a drop-in center just steps from BGCA. The organization aims to continue to expand an innovative and award-winning model of housing, education, employment, and health services across San Francisco. Three out of four youth who complete the full range of programs at Larkin Street successfully exit street life.
Those purchasing tickets for the event, who must already be ticket-holders for the Phish concert that same night, will get a pre-show hour with complimentary cocktails and light dinner, a WaterWheel poster designed by Jim Pollock limited to a run of 350, a WaterWheel Nalgene water bottel, early entrance into the concert venue and the ability to participate in an auction and/or raffle of autographed posters and memorabilia from the Phish archives. Plus, you’ll help lift a great organization.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 26 at noon PT here.
