About The Dax Locke Foundation: Facing the challenge that no parent should have to face, the death of her two-year old son, Dax Locke, to AML7, a rare form of cancer, Julie Locke chose to use Dax's unique story which began in Washington, Illinois and spread worldwide through an Emmy nominated song written by Christian songwriter, Matthew West, “One Last Christmas” and inspired a Hollywood movie of Dax's short life, “The Heart of Christmas” to bring education and awareness of childhood cancers. Julie Locke began The Dax Locke Foundation, a not-for-profit 5013 charity, that has had significant impact in our local communities and has also reached a global base of supporters to her mission to help the children and families of St. Jude with a goal of raising 1.8 million dollars, the cost to run St. Jude Research Hospital for one day. The Dax Locke Foundation has to date raised just over one million dollars. For more information visit daxlocke.org About the Concert: The concert will feature Amie’s Music Together staff and teachers singing favorite Music Together songs, playing instruments, refreshments, and a special guest appearance by recording artist Gerry Dignan.“Uncle” Gerry is featured on the CDs given to the thousands of families worldwide who take Music Together classes.
