From Phish's Dinner and a Movie Ep. 23 announcement:
The next episode of Dinner and A Movie will not be taking place next Tuesday. But good news: we’re excited to announce a triple-feature over Labor Day weekend, three nights of archival shows from Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, CO to commemorate Phish’s end-of-summer celebrations. Next Friday, we’ll air Phish’s set from 9/1/17. On Saturday, we’ll air 9/1/12. And then on Sunday, on the show’s 5-year anniversary, we’ll air 9/6/15.
The beneficiary for the full weekend is The Mockingbird Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving access to music education for America’s youth. You can make a donation now via The Waterwheel Foundation at phish.com/waterwheel. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to dozens of music education programs, and funds those grants through a combination of fundraising, publishing, and the curation of Phish.net, one of the earliest Internet fan communities. The Mockingbird Foundation has no salaries, paid staff, office space, or endowment — thus distributing all possible funds to charity. The Foundation’s primary purpose is charitable, with more than $1.6M in grants to 450 grantees covering all 50 states. For more information, visit mbird.org.

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.
