Joey’s Little Angels is partnering with the Where Angels Play Foundation to build a playground in Limewood Park in Hamilton called Joey’s Place. In the next year, Joey’s Little Angels will be raising money for Joey’s Place to be built and I know they would appreciate any donation you can give to help get this playground up.There are little sweet and sentimental touches to the playground like a Duke Blue Devil spring rider for where Joey received his treatment. Joey’s Place is also planned to be a purple color which is the color that represents Hurler’s Syndrome and Joey’s Little Angels. They hope the playground will be up for all children to enjoy in April of 2022.
I found out about Joey’s Little Angels a few years ago when I met Liz Egan through my husband. Our husbands work together and I’ll never forget the day I met Liz. We instantly connected on so many levels and I am extremely blessed that she came into my life. One night, while having some sangria, Liz told me about her nephew Joey Angiolino who had passed away when he was just a little baby. My heart broke for her and her family. I can’t even imagine the pain this family went through loosing this little baby. The Angiolono family are extremely strong and I am blown away by Joey’s Little Angels and what an amazing organization they’ve built in honor of little Joey. I was fortunate to attend their annual toy drive and watch them collect a mountain of toys for children in hospitals all over. I am so excited about Joey’s Place and I cannot wait to bring my son there. Please donate!
