There's no cure for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and that's something a benefit held Saturday in Plover is aiming to change.

After Lisa Lucht's son died from SIDA in 2001, she began organizing the annual benefit that has raised close to $16,000 for researching the mysterious disease.

"3,000 infants die, roughly, a year in the United States from SIDS," said Lucht. "It's undetermined, they don't know what causes it and it's very hard for parents to cope and deal with."

The event was made possible with the help of donations from several area businesses.
