Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation is Auctioning Off Fall Tour Ticket Packages
Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation has partnered up with the Mimi Fishman Foundation for an online charity auction of ticket packages for their 2013 Fall Tour. The proceeds from each auction will benefit organizations in each city on the tour that are associated with WaterWheel.
Phish will begin their 2013 Fall Tour October 18 with a three night run at the Hampton Coliseum before continuing on to Rochester, NY, Glen Falls, NY, Worcester, MA, Hartford, CT and Reading, PA. They will then wrap up the outing with a three-night Halloween run at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. As of September 14, nine of the twelve shows are sold out.
In addition to ticket packages, Phish are also offering a special deal for the Atlantic City shows that includes a room at the Tropicana, as well as tickets to the shows. The online auction is live and bidding will close on Tuesday, September 24. Fans that would like to bid on the ticket packages can do so here.
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 as a a way of raising funds for various charities that were important to Mimi.
