The March of Dimes held its 2012 Greenville Signature Chefs Auction on Thursday, October 4, 2012. Once again, this year’s event featured the culinary talents of Greenville’s finest local chefs and restaurants! Sample signature dishes from local Chefs were available while attendees bid on unique and tempting silent and live auction packages, all to benefit the March of Dimes mission.
Each year more than 26,000 babies are born too soon, too small or too sick in our state — the equivalent of more than 1,046 kindergarten classrooms. In 50% of these cases, we don’t know why — and anyone can be affected, no matter how well you take care of yourself during pregnancy. The success of events like the Signature Chefs Auctions enables March of Dimes to find the answers.
March of Dimes is dedicated to improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality by funding research to understand and prevent premature birth, educating women about risk reduction, assisting health professionals in evaluating patient risks and advocating to expand access to health care.
