March of Dimes believes that every baby deserves the best possible start.  Unfortunately, not all babies get one.  We are changing that. From advocacy to education to research to direct support in the community, we're working to level the playing field so all moms and babies are healthy.  We believe that when a society supports every family, the future is brighter for us all-- and when communities come together, even the toughest problems can be solved.

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.

March of Dimes is also fighting for initiatives to increase access to care for all, and to address the devastating disparities in health outcomes for women and children of color. 

You can join the fight.  Make a 100% tax deductible donation at the event or click here to make your donation today.



Join us for the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction & Gala, a benefit for the health of all moms and babies.  The evening begins with a tasting ensemble of the Bay Area's most desirable cuisine, prepared and served by culinary masters from top local establishments, many Michelin-rated. This rare constellation of Michelin stars and fine cuisine is accompanied by an enviable array of wine and spirits, highlighting the best that Wine Country has to offer.  This extraordinary tasting ensemble gives way to a seated dessert program and a rousing live auction, offering an opportunity to bid on insider packages and unique experiences not available anywhere else.

The evening concludes with the AfterGlow, a post-gala fete with yet more food, wine, spirits and music, to celebrate an evening of philanthropy and advancement of the fight for the health of all moms, babies and families.
