Some of the most unique items that Stremmel Auctions has ever had the pleasure to sell. Featured items near and dear to the Grateful Dead will be available to the public for the very first time. Items include a replica of the Dead’s conference table, a wedding invitation and preserved rose from Jerry Garcia’s wedding, and original Jan Sawka art work.
In the spirit of the generosity that Hal, Jerry and the Grateful Dead were known for - we'll be making a donation to the Rex Foundation at the end of the auction as a gift from Dr. Jesse Kant, the estate of Hal Kant, and Stremmel Auctions. Hal served on the board of the Rex Foundation from it's start back in 1983 until he passed away in 2008. The Rex Foundation was established as a non-profit charitable organization, allowing the band to proactively support creative endeavors in the arts, sciences, and education. Despite Jerry's passing in 1995 the Rex Foundation continues to make grants funded by the very elements that hold our community together: music, connection, fun, creativity and community spirit. Since 1984 the Rex Foundation has granted $8.9 million to over 1,200 recipients.
