The March of Dimes Foundation, the nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies is having a “Signature Chefs Auction” on October 8 at the Community Choice Credit Union Grand Ballroom in the Des Moines Events Center.
Signature Chefs Auction pays tribute to and celebrates the culinary excellence of the area’s finest chefs, all while raising money to fight premature birth and give every baby a healthy start.
ASI is proud to be a sponsor for the event and help in reaching the goal of raising $200,000.
In the central division of March of Dimes only, 16,456 babies are born each year, 1,819 of them prematurely and 500 with a birth defect.
By contributing we help every baby receive a polio vaccine developed with funding by the March of Dimes. Children in the Central Division are vaccinated against 14 diseases and receive screening for 31 inherited disorders.
