Approximately 200 patrons gathered to give generously in support of March of Dimes’ 81st Signature Chefs Auction, which pays tribute to the culinary excellence of prominent chefs while raising money to improve the health of all moms and babies. This year, the black-tie gala raised $140,000 for research, programs and resources at March of Dimes.

The Omni Royal Orleans hosted the gala, home to the Lead Chef, Tom Wolfe. Patrons enjoyed a 90-minute tasting experience before taking seats for the Live Auction and Fund the Mission, where they could bid on one-of-a-kind packages and participate in a paddle raise.
