Still want to help us?



Join us for the 2017 March of Dimes Signature Chefs, a benefit for babies, an event to raise funds for the campaign to end prematurity. The event is a culinary showcase, featuring San Francisco’s top culinary masters. This rare opportunity is made possible by participating chefs graciously donating their time and talent to create a food experience beyond any available at a single location in San Francisco. Each tasting is thoughtfully created to tantalize the palette of even the savviest “foodie” and highlight the chef’s unique and exceptional talents. Amidst a lively party atmosphere and exciting entertainment, guests will enjoy exquisite cuisine, spirited cocktails and enticing auction packages.

1 in 12 babies in San Francisco will be born premature. Premature birth is one of the most significant health threats to moms and babies today -- the leading cause of death amongst newborns, and the leading cause of lasting childhood disabilities. In California, March of Dimes is currently funding 26 research grants totaling more than $6 million, and is committed to finding the cause and prevention of preterm birth. You can help fight premature birth by making an 100% tax deductible donation at the event or click here to make your donation today.
