Limited Edition Signed Phish Posters Featured on The Mimi Fishman Foundation's On-Line Auction

Monday, February 8, 2010

The first Mimi Fishman Foundation on-line charity auction of the new decade has just launched. The auction features over 30 limited edition posters from Phish's 2009 tour, including the end of year Miami run and Festival 8. All the posters are signed by each of the members of Phish and in most cases the poster artist as well; Phish famed artist Jim Pollock included. Making the posters extremely rare is the fact the band signed only 5 posters from each show.

The beneficiaries of the auction proceeds include the Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments, a wonderful organization that extends services to visually impaired children ages birth to three as well as their families - as well as the SPCA of Syracuse, an organization which was very close to Mimi's heart and where she got her cat Valentine.

Bidding on the auction concludes Monday, March 1; with each auction item having it's own specific end time.

The Mimi Fishman Foundation Issues Two Grants totaling $30,000

Thursday, July 30, 2009

June 15, 2009 was memorable for the Mimi Fishman Foundation. Phish drummer Jon Fishman, Phish Security Director John Langenstein, and the Foundation's Executive Director David Shulman all paid a visit to the Delta Gamma Center for Children With Visual Impairments new facility in Richmond Heights, MO. Fishman and Langenstein were both in St. Louis on an off day of the Phish 2009 Summer Tour.

The visit began with a dedication of the music room in Mimi Fishman's honor now called the Mimi Fishman Music Therapy Room. During the visit, the trio also observed two music therapy classes for children served by the Center. Jon Fishman participated in the therapy classes including leading the children in a drum circle and song. The visit concluded with Jon Fishman handing a $20,000 donation from the Foundation to the Center. Combined with $10,000 raised for Phish's Waterwheel Foundation in late May, the Mimi Fishman Foundation in the last 10 years has now issued grants and donations totaling over $331,000.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank all that have helped make what we do possible. This includes those that bid, donate items, as well as help spread the word. Thank you!

Auction featuring Phish memorabilia designed by Jim Pollock

Auction funds will go to the Waterwheel Foundation
Thursday, May 7, 2009

Phish and the Mimi Fishman Foundation have joined forces to raise funds for the Waterwheel Foundation. Created by Phish in 1997, the Waterwheel Foundation oversees the band's various charitable activities.

The auction will be facilitated by the Mimi Fishman Foundation and is scheduled to launch May 7, with the bidding coming to close on May 20. Serious Phish memorabilia/Jim Pollock fans will want to pay attention as the auction includes the original (one-of-a-kind) marker drawing of the artwork which became the Phish Hampton 2009 poster. Also featured on the auction is the last numbered print of the poster (750/750), which as an added bonus is also signed by the band. Another gem is an Artist Proof test printing of the Hampton Poster. Pollock artwork and posters were donated by Jim Pollock from his personal collection.

In addition, the auction includes two packages which feature both Phish and the Dave Matthews Band. The Fenway Double-Header features 2 tickets and passes for the May 30 Dave Matthews Band Fenway show, as well as 2 tickets for the May 31 Phish Fenway show.

If that wasn't enough, the auction also includes ten Phish Fenway Ticket/Download packages. The highest bidder for each package will receive 2 tickets and 1 MP3 download of the complete Fenway concert from LivePhish.com.

The proceeds from this auction will be donated to The Carolina Friends School/Afghan Sister School Project, The Neuroendocrine Tumor Clinic at the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, and The Seven Below Arts Initiative. These donations will be made in memory of Trey Anastasio's sister Kristy Manning who passed away in late April.
