The Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery in Chicago held a series of fundraisers, during their Summer Honey Tapping Party, in conjunction with the recent Phish shows there. Rock Bottom donated funds to the Mockingbird Foundation for every pint of their “Sample” beer sold over the weekend, and served it in special mason jars emblazoned with the Foundation logo. Co-manager T.J. Catalini also organized a raffle, live music, and more! Foundation board member Charlie Dirksen attended on Friday, as did Foundation volunteers Kevin Hoy on Friday and Scott Marks on Saturday – and, of course, many other Phish fans, including perhaps you.
The Mockingbird Foundation has now received a check for $1,101.50 raised from CraftWorks Foundation, which handles the corporate giving for CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries Inc.’s 250 restaurants under multiple brands. We appreciate everyone for their support of music education. In particular, we want to thank TJ, as well as Angie Leach and Michelle Jones of CraftWorks. We hope that we can do it again the next time Phish is in town - and look forward to seeing even more of you there!

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.
