March of Dimes Signature Chef Event and Auction

A signature chef event and auction to raise money for the March of Dimes is held annually in more than 200 cities. This past weekend at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Miami, more than 20 chefs rolled out their best signature dishes to help moms carry full-term pregnancies. In recent years, this event has raised more than $25 million to make sure all babies are born healthy.
