The Mimi Fishman Foundation has announced that it will donate proceeds from A Tribute to Mimi to the American Red Cross. The benefit concert will be held October 5 at the Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, NY. Performers include Jon Fishman, Merl Saunders and his Funky Friends, Col. Bruce Hampton and the Code Talkers and Sand Bear. After consulting the Fishman family, we have decided the proceeds will serve as our offering to those citizens that have been affected by the awful and tragic events of September 11 said David Shulman, co-founder of The Mimi Fishman Foundation. Mimi wanted to help people any way she could and this is yet another example of that. The show will also feature a musical slide show remembering Mimi. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.
