The annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction is a foodie philanthropist’s dream come true as over 20 local chefs put their best food samples together and offering their time in unique auction packages.
March of Dimes works to ensure healthy pregnancies and to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. Presented by Mercantile Bank of Michigan, the evening offers samples of each chef’s signature dish alongside a huge silent auction and live auction with culinary-themed packages.
As always, it was a joy working with the March of Dimes team capturing this event! What an amazing array of food, drinks, and wonderful people.
