2018 event co-chairs Chris Raymond, Founder of Taste, Jim Thompso, Board chair,  and the event committee cordially invite you to the annual Signature Chefs Auction.  Signature Chefs Auction is widely regarded as the Capital Regions premier charitable culinary event and features an evening of elegance and incredible food.  Signature dishes and wine tastings are provided by the areas most acclaimed chefs and restaurant partners. Their offerings are complimented by a silent and live auction which offers unique, once-in-a-lifetime packages to guests who comprise some of the area’s most philanthropic individual and corporate citizens.  Their generosity and willingness to Fund Our Mission is focused on one thing – a future of Healthy Moms and Strong Babies.

In addition we honor 4 local nurses with the Healthy Mom Strong Babies Nurses Award.  These awards recognize nurses who deomonstrate a dedication and committment to the health of all moms and all babies.


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.

Meet the Lockhart Family

December is supposed to be a joyous month filled with spending time with friends and family and celebrating holidays. Celebrating the birth of your first born child is supposed to share the same joyful excitement. In 2013 both of these celebrated times were given a new meaning with the birth of our daughter Daisy. After a textbook 20 weeks of pregnancy, that final month was filled with fear, anxiety, and pain. That pain was the start of a placental abruption and the ultimate reason our beautiful baby girl came 14 weeks early on December 21st, 2013 weighing 1lb 13oz at 13in long.  It was 81 long, stressful days in the NICU of watching, waiting, holding, pumping, and more watching as our tiny, wilted flower bloomed into a beautiful Daisy.
Today, Daisy is an intelligent, active four year old off to Pre-K in the fall

From the surfactant in Daisy’s lungs to the Share Your Story webpage, to the amazing annual March for Babies events, the March of Dimes has been our support system and foundation for ensuring we can give back to those in our position and ultimately fight to end prematurity today.


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.
