CHESHIRE — The Red Hat Event will be held Sunday to honor Christina and Todd Francis’ son Nicholas, who was stillborn Dec. 11, 2015, to benefit the support organization Hope After Loss.

Nicholas Francis was named after St. Nicholas, because his birth date was close to Christmas, and his parents dressed him with a Santa Claus hat that had been knit for his brother Gavin.

Hope After Loss supports family members who have lost a baby during pregnancy or in infancy.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at the Waverly Inn, 286 Maple Ave. Tickets for a photo with Santa can be ordered online at www.classy.org. Search for “Hope After Loss.” There also will be a raffle.
