FUND THE MISSION

All March of Dimes Signature Chefs events will be held virtually this year. While we may not be together in person, we rely on your continued support to provide innovative programs and services for moms, moms-to-be and babies who may be at a greater risk of becoming sick and not receiving proper or equitable care.

Thank you to the 2017 March of Dimes Signature Chef Chairs, Jeremy and Erica Stalter and the Co-Chairs, Tom and Christi Miller.

Thank you also to our lead chef, Howard Hanna and the amazing chefs who so generously donated their time and talents to make this the best Signature Chefs event to date!

The Signature Chef Auction is a benefit for babies, an event to raise funds for the campaign to end prematurity. The event is a culinary showcase, featuring 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 in Kansas City. 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 exiting entertainment, guests will enjoy exquisite cuisine, spirited cocktails and enticing raffle and auction packages.

SUPPORT THE MISSION

The March of Dimes is leading the fight to tackle the vast problems of pre-term birth. Prematurity is one of the most significant health threats to moms and babies today. Prematurity leaves a devastating toll on families in Missouri and Kansas and places a heavy financial burden on our health system.

 -1 in 9 babies in Kansas are born premature
 -1 in 10 babies in Missouri are born premature 
 -Prematurity is the leading cause of death amongst newborns
 -Prematurity is a leading cause of lasting childhood disabilities
 -It is estimated that the societal and economic costs of pre-term birth is $26.2 billion annually
