Rock'n the Auction

When you are doing good, wild things happen!  This year, we are honored to host a public auction of a one-of-a-kind painting. This unique, priecless piece was created here in Grand Rapids during the KISS' concert in March 2019. Artist David Garbaldi created the piece, on stage, at the concert. If you would like to bid click here. Auction will close on November 11 at 8 pm. All proceeds will benifit West Michigan March of Dimes. 

Special thanks to Travis Henkaline of Fox 17 for making this possible.

SUPPORT THE MISSION

Premature birth is the most serious infant health problem in the United States today. It affects more than half a million babies nationwide each year, with over 15,000 in Michigan alone. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have lifelong disabilities. 

March of Dimes is committed to reversing this trend by funding research to find the causes of premature birth and providing comfort and information to families. 

With your March of Dimes Fund the Mission Gift at Signature Chefs, we can help to fund the research, education, and support needed to ensure more babies celebrate their first birthday.
