————————–————————–————–

Red Fawn is a human rights advocate, organizer, and a community leader within the Oglala Lakota Sioux. She was raised in traditional Lakota ways, grounded with love and deep connection to the earth and all living things. Her mother, Troylynn Yellow Wood, taught her the importance of fighting for social and environmental justice.

She has been imprisoned since Oct. 27th 2016 after Morton County Sheriff Department accused her of firing a weapon during a militarized police raid of the Standing Rock Prayer and Resistance Camps, although eyewitnesses saw, and firmly say, otherwise. On that day, Red Fawn was helping those who had been injured, as a frontline medic.

Red Fawn is a symbol of Indigenous Resistance, and she is being wrongfully imprisoned–she needs our support! We are fundraising to help with the cost of her legal team.

***We are accepting donations for raffle—please contact us if you would like to donate.***

For millions of passionate Grateful Dead fans, there is only one “Wolf”: Jerry Garcia’s beloved guitar. Customized by luthier Doug Irwin, Wolf was delivered to Jerry and first appeared in a 1973 New York City performance the Grateful Dead gave for the Hells Angels. Over the following two decades, Wolf became almost as well known as the performer himself as it appeared in countless concerts and on treasured recordings throughout Jerry’s fabled career.

Years after the musician’s passing, Wolf returned to Doug and was sold in a 2002 Guernsey’s auction conducted at NYC’s electric Studio 54, where it fetched close to $1 million, more than doubling the existing world record. Now, Wolf’s buyer, wishing to support the important efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center and its continuing fight against racism and hate groups, has returned Wolf to Guernsey’s for an unprecedented one lot auction of this most treasured guitar. The proceeds of the winning high bid on this extraordinary instrument will go to SPLC. This Guernsey’s event, additionally supported by the Relix Group, will be held on May 31st, live at the fabulous Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. Absentee bidders will also be accommodated.

From San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom to NYC’s Palladium to Egypt’s Great Pyramids, Jerry and Wolf travelled, appearing in front of massive, passionate audiences. It is no wonder that the devoted Deadhead who purchased the Wolf in 2002 has said, “I’ve been a fan of The Dead since I was a kid, and playing this iconic guitar over the past 15 years has been a privilege. But the time is right for Wolf to do some good. My wife and I have long supported the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and if ever we needed the SPLC, we sure do need them now.”

Rarely, if ever, has there been an item as memorable and noteworthy as the Wolf being sold in support of such a worthy cause. Guernsey’s is thrilled that the return of Wolf will go a long way to combat racism and injustice across the country.

Brooklyn Bowl is proud to present on May 31st a spectacular Guernsey’s auction event, where celebrated musicians will have a chance to play Wolf one last time before it finds a new owner. Those interested in bidding on Wolf, or attending the auction and preview events should visit www.guernseys.com or contact the auction house in New York at 212-794-2280.

All Auction and Show proceeds donated to Southern Poverty Law Center.
