On October 19, Jean-Robert and Annette de Cavel will host the annual de Cavel Family SIDS Foundation fundraiser to raise money for the research, support, and education of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), at the Midwest Culinary Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The annual Friends and Family SIDS Brunch fundraiser is dedicated to the de Cavel’s daughter Tatiana, who died in 2002 from SIDS.
Since 2004, the family has hosted an annual community brunch that brings together local families with some of the best restaurants in Cincinnati, all in service of the eradication of SIDS.
The Foundation has most recently awarded grants to Researcher Dr. John Hutton at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center; Cradle Cincinnati; Tri-Health’s Cribs for Kids and the Tatiana de Cavel Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State.
On Sunday, October 19, the de Cavel family will host the Friends and Family Brunch at the Midwest Culinary Institute, featuring food and beverages from some of the city’s best restaurants, as well as a silent auction.
“We are so very grateful to our friends in Cincinnati’s food community and everyone who has supported our events for all of these years,” said the de Cavels. “Our long term goal is to eradicate SIDS, but in the meantime, we can make a difference, promoting the message of safe sleep and providing safe sleep arrangements for hundreds of families in greater Cincinnati, and also providing educational opportunities for culinary students.”
Tickets will soon be available to the public. If you are not able to attend and wish to help, you may also donate to support the Foundation.
