Jon Langenstein, Phish’s longtime security director, is donating much of his personal collection of Phish memorabilia in an effort to raise funds for The Station Family Fund.
“his terrible tragedy could have happened to any one of us that goes to live shows. I took it to heart, The Station Nightclub fire really hit home”, said Langenstein.
The Station Family Fund is an all-volunteer, 501 c 3 recognized, tax exempt, nonprofit organization, founded to offer assistance and relief to people directly affected by the fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island. 100 people perished, close to 200 severely injured, and more than 60 children lost one or both parents in the horrific fire on Feb 20, 2002.
The wide array of items includes many rare Phish show posters, all but one numbered, a few signed, and all out of print.
