Event description

The chefs, volunteers and guests who make up our Signature Chefs Events community are coming together in new, innovative ways to suport moms and babies this year.

We are following state mandated guidelines in response to COVID-19 and will not have an in-person event this year. So, we are preparing an exciting, new Virtual Gala for your 2020 March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction experience!

We need your help now more than ever. Your support funds:

  • COVID-19 interventions and support for moms and babies
  • Programs that promote health equity for moms and babies and directly combat racial disparities in maternal and child health
  • Free virtual NICU support program for families
  • Virtual prenatal programs for moms-to-be
  • Educational programs, including live Facebook panel discussions, to get info into the hands of moms and families
  • Necessary supplies for expectant mothers including blood pressure cuffs and masks and so much more!

Support the mission

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.

Event description

The March of Dimes premier fundraising event, Signature Chefs Auction: Feeding Motherhood, celebrates culinary excellence with top chefs featuring tastings of their creations for supporters. A dynamic, interactive cocktail party atmosphere reflects regional styles and local flavors with event components that include a live auction and a compelling appeal to support the mission of March of Dimes.

At this time, we do plan to gather together in person this fall for our Signature Chefs event on Friday, November 5. We are following CDC guidelines and regulations put forth by local health departments in regards to social distancing and the COVID-19 pandemic. If needed, we will make adjustments to the size, format, and scope of the event to ensure a safe experience for all. If we are unable to gather in person, March of Dimes will host a virtual event.
