The March of Dimes Signature Chef’s Auction is an elegant evening featuring a variety of culinary treasures from some of the area’s best chefs, restaurants, & caterers and priceless auction packages. Lots of good causes have black tie events, but only the March of Dimes can invite you to a ‘black bib’ affair!

Funds raised through the Signature Chefs Auction support lifesaving research and programs that offer hope for prevention of infant health threats in the future. The March of Dimes carries out its lifesaving mission through programs of research, advocacy, education and community services including thousands of dollars awarded right here in Jonesboro in the form of local community grants.

We have sponsorships and tables available as well as individual tickets. Limited seating is available; so reserve your tickets today. Also if you would be interested in helping with planning, decorating, acquiring auction items, advertising, promotions or publicity, please contact Melissa Gann with the March of Dimes.
