This year’s celebration benefited the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation (TQCF). The event was held at Dante Robere Vineyards in Livermore, CA. For the attendees, there was wine tasting, food trucks, a silent auction and a DJ. As always, we also honored the leaders whose work has helped families who have experienced infertility.

We were especially pleased to highlight this year’s Family Building Champion: case manager DevRonne Houston, who started with RSC as a medical assistant 17 years ago.


This fundraising event helps families with infertility grow

All of the proceeds from the Corks with Cade event will go toward the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation’s Family Building Grants. These funds are allocated for the costs of infertility treatments or adoption.

Featured grant recipient: The Ramirez family

2019’s winner of the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation’s Family Building Grant was Jenafer Ramirez of Sacramento. Jenafer and her partner tried to conceive naturally for several years without success. After applying for and being awarded the Family Building Grant, her second round of in vitro fertilization (IVF) was successful.

In October of 2020 they welcomed their son, R.J. She is incredibly grateful to the Cade Foundation and RSC for all of their continued support, time and attention.
