Suzy Beth Sarver named 2013 Triangle Signature Chefs Auction Chair
Raleigh, North Carolina, July 15, 2013
The Eastern Carolina Division of March of Dimes is delighted to announce accomplished media professional Suzy Beth Sarver will serve as the 2013 Triangle Signature Chefs Auction Chair. Currently, Sarver is the Publisher of 919 Magazine, which distributes six unique community-oriented, full-color editions along the I-540 Corridor in North Raleigh, Morrisville and Wake Forest. While directing operations at the company, she also participates in several events and interacts daily with local businesses and organizations throughout the region.
“As a mother of two healthy boys, I’m acutely aware of how important good prenatal care is and how we need to support North Carolina mothers and promote healthy pregnancies and healthy babies,” said Sarver, explaining her involvement with the March of Dimes event. “This is also a great opportunity to bring together our communities and the residents of the 919 area for a great cause and an outstanding event.”
The 2013 Triangle Signature Chefs Auction will feature the culinary talents of area’s finest local chefs and restaurants. Attendees will be able to sample signature dishes from 10 local chefs while bidding on unique and tempting silent and live auction packages, all to benefit the March of Dimes mission. The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. The March of Dimes carries out this mission through programs of research, community services, education and advocacy.
Prior to moving to North Carolina early in 2012, Sarver spent 15 years working in a variety of roles in broadcasting, publishing, advertising and other media – including management positions with Susco Media in San Diego. In addition, she served as executive producer and on-air host for “Homes 2TV”, a San Diego real estate-oriented television show.
“We are so fortunate to have such a top-tier presence as Suzy serve as our Chair for the year’s diamond anniversary event,” said Catherine Heindselman, Director of the Eastern Carolina Division of March of Dimes. “She has graciously agreed to help support the March of Dimes, and subsequently, to help give babies a healthy start in life.”
The Signature Chefs Auction will be held on Sunday, November 17 from 6:00 p.m. – 9 p.m. For more information, contact Patti Celestini at PCelestini@marchofdimes.com or directly at 919-424-2169. Alternatively connect with March of Dimes on Facebook at facebook.com/MarchOfDimesNorthCarolina
In 2013, the March of Dimes celebrates its 75th anniversary and its ongoing work to help babies get a healthy start in life. Early research led to the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines that all babies still receive. Other breakthroughs include new treatments for premature infants and children with birth defects. About 4 million babies are born each year in the United States, and all have benefited from March of Dimes lifesaving research and education.
