Here’s a little more about the event, from Bluegrass for Babies:

New for this year’s concert are expanded food options including booths from Eli’s BBQ, Mazunte, Dewey’s Pizza and Green BEAN Delivery. Local craft beer offerings have also expanded with beers from Mad Tree and Mt. Carmel breweries on tap.

The concert, an official Giving Hope Fundraising Event for Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, was started by Anne and Matt Schneider in 2009 as a way to give back to Children’s, which had provided life-saving surgery to their newborn son. Since the first concert in their backyard in 2009, Bluegrass for Babies has raised nearly $130,000 for Children’s, and has evolved into the Healthy Roots Foundation, a year-round organization providing tools, programming, and resources as well as hosting a variety of special events with the mission of helping parents create an optimal environment to raise healthy children.

“Our lives were forever changed because of the care we received from the physicians at Cincinnati Children’s,” said co-founder Anne Schneider. “We created Bluegrass for Babies to not only raise funds for the hospital, but with the goal to help educate parents on raising healthy children.”

Money raised at the concert will be donated to the Perinatal Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and an innovative pilot study being conducted at the Center for the Prevention of Preterm Birth.  Dr. Louis Muglia and his team are working to better understand environmental exposures such as air and ground pollution and their effects on pregnancy outcomes. Rather than using geographic and EPA data, the researchers will provide pregnant women with personal monitors that will collect specific, individual data. For the first time ever, researchers will have detailed information about the environmental impact on increased risk for preterm birth and still birth.
