THANK YOU!! Wow, what a testament to Joe and the impact he had on those who knew him.  In just 24 hours, over 125 donors raised over $5,000 See More

THE STORY:

UPDATE: The outpouring of support for Joe Ramaikas' family after his untimely passing time has been enormous, and so many people near and far have asked how they can help. This fundraiser was set up specifically for anyone to make smaller donations to help out with the immediate expenses. The money raised here will go towards the cost of food, beverages, flowers, programs, and other specific expenses associated with Friday's memorial.  We saw this as an opportunity for lots of people to come together in a small way, with an immediate and large impact on his family.  Any funds raised in addition to what is needed for the memorial will be deposited into Hank's Educational Fund.

Now that we have reached our goal and beyond, if you would still like to make a donation in Joe's honor please consider one of the 3 options listed below:

Preservation Hall Jazz Band Foundation:  http://www.preshallfoundation.org.   Visiting The Preservation Hall in New Orleans was a yearly pilgrimage for Joe and Felice.  They have amazing programs for young musicians.  http://www.preshallfoundation.org/ways-to-help-donate.  Please make note that it is a memorial donation on behalf of Joe Ramaikas.

Friends of Haleakala National Park, Inc.: Joe, Felice, and Hank have made multiple trips to Hawaii, and it has been a very special place for them. http://www.fhnp.org and click on the button Donate Now.  Please make note that it is a memorial donation on behalf of Joe Ramaikas.

HANK’S EDUCATION FUND: In honor of the memory of his father Joe Ramaikas and in support of his mother Felice Ecker, a collective of friends, writers, and associates, announce the creation of an educational fund for Henry Ramaikas.

We are so saddened by Joe's untimely passing, and are thinking of Felice and Hank. It will be hard to go to Cedar Ridge but we will even more to continue to support his work family. Sorry we can't be at the memorial, but he will forever be in our thoughts. 1 year ago
