This gourmet extravaganza is perfect for the food lover in you! Sample the signature dishes of over 20 local chefs, bid on incredible, unique and tempting silent auction and culinary live auction packages while supporting the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birht and infant morality.
Funds raised by Signature Chefs Auction support lifesaving research and educational programs found in West Michigan. Money raised will help fund research, awareness, education and local community grants. In 2011, the March of Dimes granted $1.1 million to programs in Michigan. Many of these grants fund programs that provide prenatal education for doctors and nurses at community hospitals as well as the March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. In 2012, a new grant was given to First Steps in support of their Welcome Home Baby program, which provides essential supplies to encourage safe sleep among newborn babies. The March of Dimes plays a vital role in may families locally. Guests at Signature Chefs Auction will have the opportunity to recognize the local impact by hearing first hand testimony from this year's event ambassador family.
