Jean Robert & Wife Host Annual SIDS Fundraiser (Win Tickets)

Contest Closed. Congratulations to FFC reader Jessie W.  Check your email Jessie!

October is National Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness Month and Cincinnati Chef Jean-Robert de Cavel and his wife Annette are hosting their annual fundraiser, Eat.Play.Give The Friends and Family Brunch and Silent Auction, to help raise awareness and funds for SIDS research, education and support as well as funds for  the Tatiana de Cavel Scholarship Fund at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State.

The very tasty brunch takes place on Sunday, October 9 at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State from 11:30am to 2:30pm. Attendees will get to enjoy food and beverages from Cincinnati’s best restaurants, there’ll be plenty of hands-on activities for kids and a silent auction with art, jewelry, restaurant certificates and dinners from some of the best Chefs in Cincinnati from restaurants like Daveed’s at 934, Orchids at the Palm Court, Otto’s,  Eat Well Catering, Hugo, Queen City Cookies, Taste of Belgium,  La Poste Eatery and more. We had to wipe away the drool just typing this list of restaurants….

Now here is the fun part…. Family Friendly Cincinnati is proud to support this wonderful event and excited to share that we’ve been provided a family 4-pack (2 adults, 2 children) of tickets to the Brunch to giveaway to one lucky Family Friendly Cincinnati reader, a $200 value!

About The de Cavel Family SIDS Foundation: in June 2002, Jean-Robert and Annette de Cavel lost their baby daughter, Tatiana to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). Devasted by their loss, but determined to help other families affected by SIDS, they founded 7 Days for SIDS, now The de Cavel Family SIDS Foundation. The outpouring of support from Greater Cincinnati’s restaurant community made it one of the most comprehensive and successful SIDS fundraisers in the country. Since June 2003, the de Cavels and a devoted group of volunteers have raised over $600,000 for SIDS research, education and support—and also for the Tatiana de Cavel Scholarship Fund at the Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State. Annette and Jean-Robert’s sincerest wish is that someday no family will have to endure the devastating loss of SIDS.
