Signature Chef's Auction pays tribute to the culinary excellence of local chefs from the Northwest Arkansas community, while raising significant revenue to help in the fight to save babies. Local chefs and restaurants will present their signature dishes in sample size portions during a cocktail reception, where you can also taste wines, signature cocktails and locally brewed beer. During the reception, guests enjoy a large silent auction consisting of items such as weekend getaways, jewelry, gift baskets, electronics, artwork, gift certificates, and much, much more! A live auction follows with unique packages created by participating restaurants and chefs including private home dinners, destination packages with hotel stays, and more!
Tasting and Silent Auction: 6:00 to 7:45 p.m.
Program and Live Auction/Fund the Mission: 7:45 to 9:00 p.m.
Fund the Mission
From Polio to Prematurity, the March of Dimes has worked hard to fund research, programs and education to ensure more babies are born strong and healthy. Each year, 4 million babies are born in the United States and nearly 500,000 are born premature - or “too soon”. At the Signature Chefs Auction you will hear from one of these families. Born premature, the Kaundart’s daughter came into this world fighting for life….
Both Signature Chef Auction guests and supporters who are unable to attend the event are invited to “Fund the Mission” to help ensure that families like the Kaundart’s do not have to undergo spending weeks in the NICU. Each gift is 100 percent tax deductible and helps the March of Dimes carry out its' mission through research, advocacy, community programs and professional education on the local, state and national levels. With your support, March of Dimes can make a difference.
Those interested in funding the mission have several options of donating: online (In the donation area to the right), mail, phone or in-person at the event.
