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.

2021’s celebration was also hosted at Dante Robere Vineyards and included wine tasting, delicious food, live DJ, silent auction and a special award presentation to the 2021 Family Building  Champion, RSC’s Sheldon B. Josephs, FACHE.


In 2020 Corks with Cade went virtual with a wine tasting guided by a sommelier and a private cooking lesson by a master chef. That was followed by a fun virtual game night. A live DJ spun great tunes throughout the evening. Dr. Louis Weckstein was honored as the 2020 Family Building Champion.


RSC continued its commitment of supporting patients in need of costly infertility treatments with its second annual Corks with Cade fundraiser. The event featured live music, wine, gourmet food and a silent auction with all proceeds going to support the Cade Foundation’s Family Building Grants.


This year, RSC’s 35th anniversary, was our first year to sponsor the Corks with Cade fundraiser. We had a good turnout with a wine tasting, jazz and a silent auction.
