This year, over Dick's weekend, a member of the Phish community, Michael Hunt (@mjhunt) was diagnosed with stage IV hodgkin lymphoma. In lieu of a formal go-fund-me to help raise funds to support, Mike wanted to host an auction curated from his personal art and memorabilia collection.
Phish fans and photographers rallied around him and donated items that are now up for auction. The auction is full of signed Phish memorabilia, posters, vinyl, concert photography and collectibles as well as items from the Grateful Dead, the String Cheese Incident and more. They've included a complete set of TPC (including a brand-new, still in the box TPC) as well as the posters from the book.
Bid now through Sunday, November 28th at 1PM MT at ConsciousAlliance.org/InnerChi or you can make a donation to Mike's Support Fund at any time here. Every dollar raised through the auction and direct donations will benefit Mike via a grant from Conscious Alliance, a 501©(3) that supports communities in crisis.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
