March of Dimes Hosts Signature Chef Auction

Auction Service

March of Dimes hosted a signature chef auction Monday night in Grand Rapids. The auction, presented by Foster, Swift, Collins & Smith PC Attorneys, features top chefs from around West Michigan.

The event features food sampling, as well as a silent auction for wine baskets and other goods. With the money that is raised at the Signature Chef’s Auction, efforts toward research, awareness, education about premature birth as well as local community grants will be funded according to the organization.

March of Dimes says premature birth is the most serious infant health problem in the United States today. The problem is said to affect more than half a million babies nationwide each year, with over 15,000 in Michigan. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have lifelong disabilities.
