On Saturday, April 14th, Ben & Jerry’s and the WaterWheel Foundation will host a gathering on Church Street in downtown Burlington, Vermont in an effort to form the World’s Largest Cowbell Ensemble. Jon Fishman, drummer for the band Phish, will lead the effort. The two organizations are celebrating their 15 year partnership, and the anniversary of Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food.
Monies raised from the event will go to the WaterWheel Foundation’s Vermont Flood Recovery Fund to help sustain ongoing efforts to restore Vermont communities after Hurricane Irene’s devastation. Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation, a non-profit organization that serves to oversee the band’s charitable activities, will coordinate the effort. Free scoops of Phish Food will be served from the Ben & Jerry’s scoop truck for the duration of the event.
Those looking to attend need to register before the event. Registration includes a t-shirt and cowbell ($25 for adults, $12 for kids). A premium level will include a t-shirt, a premium cowbell, a ticket for entry into the Nectar’s after party where Phish will preview their newly pressed vinyl version of “Junta” and 1 ticket to the WaterWheel raffle at Nectar’s ($50 for adults).
