It's Maui at Midnight, Baby--SIDS Event for Awareness

As April 18th approaches, the night of our annual fundraiser, I give thanks to the wonderful and amazing people who have put so much time and effort in helping us put on this event. I am overwhelmed with the generosity of time our volunteers have given and are still giving!

Thank you all so much. This night is not just about raising money so that we can continue our This Side Up program to promote SIDS awareness, but it is also about letting people know that SIDS is real. It happened to me. There will be another SIDS parent, Heather Kiegel who lost her daughter to SIDS not long ago, at the event. She also started a foundation in honor of her baby, Gwyneth. SIDS is something we do not want anyone else to experience. This is not about Hayes, this is about all of the babies in our community, in our nation, in our world.

With the utmost respect and appreciation, I thank you all.
