DEF LEPPARD and KISS are among the artists that have donated signed items for an online charity auction with proceeds going to The Mimi Fishman Foundation, the Station nightclub fire victims and surviving family members, as well as the Delta Gamma Center for Children.

The auction, which will run through November 30 at, features over fifty items including signed guitars, New Year's Eve ticket/VIP pass packages, and signed posters. Every item is either signed, or rare. Other artists featured include PHISH, PHIL LESH, THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT, UMPHREY'S MCGEE, BECK, COLDPLAY, NICKEL CREEK, YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND, JACK JOHNSON, 311, BRIAN WILSON, LORETTA LYNN, and many others.

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 were severely injured, and more than 60 children lost one or both parents in the horrific fire on Feb 20, 2003. Station Family Fund information can be found at

Todd King, a survivor himself of the fire, is the President of the Station Family Fund. "It's vital we don't forget the families left behind. The Station Family Fund was formed to help those families, as well as the survivors," said King. "The Mimi Fishman Foundation has been instrumental in helping our organization raise funds through past online auctions."
