About the Joseph Gomoll Foundation/Joey’s Song:
Joseph Gomoll Foundation was established to raise money and awareness
for special needs children and all those who suffer from seizures
disorders. Our goal is to raise money that can be used for research,
treatment and support of those affected by this terrible affliction.
The generous, talented artists who donated their art to Joey’s Song
have made possible contributions to such diverse charities as The
Epilepsy Foundation of America, C.U.R.E., The Dravet Syndrome
Foundation, Gio’s Garden, Musicians on Call, and Orphans Resource
music was the centerpiece of Joey’s world, there is no better way for
us to raise money in his name than through music. It is our hope that
by producing the Joey’s Song series of CDs, we are able to take one
family’s personal tragedy and make something good come from it. We hope
that those who listen to, and purchase, Joey’s Song will not only enjoy
the incredible music, but will also feel good knowing that their
purchase is helping others. If you would like further information about
