7 Days for SIDS
I'm not sure how we already rounded the corner of Memorial Day, but it's time to start planning (and making reservations) for what has become Cincinnati restaurant's most unified effort of the year: 7 Days for SIDS, a week-long benefit to raise money for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Annette and Jean-Robert de Cavel started with a single fundraiser five years ago, in memory of their daughter Tatiana, who succumbed to SIDS at 3 months of age. Since then, the event has grown to the largest SIDS fundraiser in the country. Chefapalooza and the Father's Day brunch are signature events, but there are loads more to choose from, including specials at a variety of restaurants. There's also a Homearama Cooks for a Cause event - and tickets are only $12. Or the Friday, June 8 dinner at Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse (see first comment for full menu and wine pairings) for $200 a head.
Get your friends on board, and start making reservations.
