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.

We did the Cooks for a Cause event last year and it was a blast. It was really neat to see the chefs cooking in a regular kitchen. 7 Day for Sids is a great event.

I attended a number of 7 DAYS FOR SIDS events last year and REALLY enjoyed them.

Chefapalooza is something everyone should attend -- it's a BLAST!

we go to the father's day brunch every year. it is by far the best food event I've ever been to. all the best places in town are there. It's so cool to see all these chefs in person and kind of relaxed. And they have some have kid friendly food, too!

The Brunch always has amazing items in the auction. I've seen Prada bags, Maisonette memorabilia, plays, original art, etc. There are also fun things like gourmet cookies, jewelry, and gift certificates. The food is great too- it's a fun event!

I agree with Drew, Chefapalooza IS a blast especially if you are a Low Country Foodie - Charleston SC cookbook author Nathalie Dupree will give a cooking demo this year plus Jean-Robert & David Cook have a demo too. To sit in the MCI auditorium and watch the pros at work is pure pleasure...and then you get to taste the food and wine, wow great evening, for a great cause!

I saw Jean Robert in the Food area at Summerfair this weekend. It is good to know a chef as wonderful as he eats yummy festival food like the rest of us!
