Join us for our annual gathering of the area's finest culinary talent in support of the March of Dimes. From your arrival at the event you will enjoy the chance to taste from the chef's creations for a 90-minute tasting experience before taking your seats for the Live Auction and Fund the Mission.  Bid one of our unique packages by raising your paddle and giving generously to save babies.


Every year more than 15 million babies are born prematurely; a million will die before their first birthday as a result. With your gift at Signature Chefs to the March of Dimes, you can help to fund the research, education, and support to ensure more babies celebrate their birthday.


Through partnerships with companies, organizations and individuals, the March of Dimes is able to create unique moments for your clients, vendors and leadership teams. They participate in an exclusive dining event while supporting a critical cause. Sponsorship opportunities are available at a variety of levels for our Signature Chefs events, providing you with brand recognition, civic engagement and an exclusive client entertainment opportunity within the event. We look forward to working with you to discuss your partnership with the March of Dimes. Please contact Tracy Trapp at 610-814-7002.


Thanks to the leadership of our volunteer chair, Two-time Emmy® award-winning executive producer, president of ASR Media Productions and host of The Peak TV, Ashley Russo, our Fund the Mission chairs, Dr. Darius and Anita Desai, our Honorary Chair Dr. Lorraine Dickey and committee members, we are honored to present this Signature Chefs event. After months of hard work, these volunteers have taken the event to new heights. The March of Dimes and the families we support are grateful for the generosity and effort of the team that made this evening possible.


Signature Chefs events feature local culinary talent who create a selection of fine cuisine for an exclusive audience. Our chefs are artists, innovators and philanthropists, and we look forward to sharing their talents at the event.
