March of Dimes Celebrates Annual Signature Chefs Auction

The March of Dimes, Western New York Division presents the 2010 Signature Chefs Auction, “Feathers & Flair, A March of Dimes Monte Carlo Affair” on Friday, October 8 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel. Western New York’s finest chefs will offer their signature dishes coupled with wine tastings from regional wineries and accompanied by an array of unique live and silent auction items and entertainment. Everyone is invited to attend the evening, which raises money and awareness to save babies from prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality.

This year’s event promises to be an elegant night with some of the best restaurants in town. Featured dishes will be prepared by Alex’s Place, Blue Buffalo, Chef’s Restaurant, Fiamma Steak House, Harry’s Harbour Place Grille, Koi, La Scala, My Tomato Pie, Protocol Restaurant and Rich Renaissance Catering. Wine selections will be offered by Merritt Estate Winery.

Proceeds from Signature Chefs Auction will benefit the March of Dimes and its prematurity campaign to help reduce the rate of premature birth and support prenatal wellness programs, research grants, neonatal intensive care unit family support programs and advocacy efforts for stronger, healthier babies.   

“Premature birth is the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today, affecting more than half a million babies each year,” said Jonathan Dandes, chair of the 2010 Signature Chefs Auction and president or Rich Baseball Operations. “Signature Chefs is a fantastic event that raises money to support a very worthwhile cause – research and programs to help fight premature birth and insure all babies are both healthy both locally and nationally.”
