This year we are thrilled to be hosting our event at the SLS Beverly Hills! Enjoy a two hour food and wine tasting in the Garden Terrace with some of the best chefs in LA. At 8:00, you'll grab your cocktail and head to the Albert Ballroom to finish the night with mouthwatering desserts and the live auction.


Every year, 15 million babies are born prematurely worldwide, and 1 million will die before their first birthday. Your gift helps the March of Dimes fund research, education, advocacy and programs that help more moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. At March of Dimes, we believe that every baby deserves the best possible start. Unfortunately, not all babies get one. We are changing that.


Thanks to the leadership of our volunteer chairs 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. We are so excited and fortunate to have Todd Christopher, Partner at Gersh Agency, as this year's Event Chair. This year's goal is $750,000, and we look forward to surpassing it with his leadership. 

Event Chair: Todd Christopher, Gersh Agency
Event Co-Chair: Mark Owens, Rogers & Cowan


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.
