Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation & Mimi Fishman Foundation Announce Fall & New Year’s Run 2019 Auction
The Mimi Fishman Foundation and Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation have teamed up once again for an online charity auction. On the block this time around are tickets to Phish’s 2019 fall tour and the band’s New Year’s Eve run at Madison Square Garden. Many of the items include CID hotel packages as well. The auction is live now and will run until October 29.
Mimi Fishman, Phish drummer Jon Fishman’s mother, founded The Mimi Fishman Foundation in 1999 along with David Shulman to help families and children with an emphasis on youngsters with visual impairment. Sadly, Mimi died in 2001. But her charitable legacy lives on through the Mimi Fishman Foundation, which has raised over half a million dollars through events like the online auction in conjunction with Phish’s charitable arm, The WaterWheel Foundation, which itself has raised over $1 million for charity.
