Joey's Song is 501(c)(3) with a mission to raise awareness and money for epilepsy research and program services for children with special needs.
Joey's Song was started in 2010 following the death of four-year-old Joey Gomoll, who passed one week shy of his fifth birthday. Joey suffered from a rare and debilitating form of epilepsy known as Dravet Syndrome. Dravet's caused persistent seizures which were never able to be controlled through medications leading to severe learning disabilities. While Dravet's robbed Joey of the ability to speak, Joey remained a happy and fun loving child. He was happiest when music was playing, allowing him to hum, drum and sing in his own way. To be present when music was playing meant only one thing, that Joey would soon have you dancing and enjoying the music with him.
Because of Joey's love for music, our foundation uses music as our primary fund raising vehicle. Since Joey's death in 2010, we have produced 5 charity compilation CDs featuring rare and previously unreleased music from nationally known, award winning musicians.
Our CDs are all available as digital downloads and are available any where on the planet. Radio stations from Australia to the UK to South America to Japan to Sweden and everywhere in between have played our songs. CDs have been downloaded in over 25 countries worldwide.
Over the years, many have supported us along the way and quite frankly, we could have never done it without them. Our organization continues to grow exponentially each year, because of the incredible and selfless sponsors, donors, musicians, participants, artists, collaborators and of course you.
If you are interested in participating in Joey's Song Volume 9, hosted by the Sylvee in Madison, Wisconsin, please click on any of these links or reach out anytime directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your contribution of time and energy.
Together, through our music, we hope to help educate the world about epilepsy and raise money to help find a cure.
