“I am co-chairing this year’s event because I believe in strong babies and healthy mothers,” said Kathryn Idoux, co-chair of March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction 2018. “The research funded by March of Dimes allowed my premature twins to become the thriving 8-year-olds they are today.”

Signature Chefs Auction is the premier fundraising gala for March of Dimes Dallas. Proceeds help support research, lead programs and provide education and advocacy so that every baby can have the best possible start.

Today, one in 10 babies in the United States is born prematurely. March of Dimes is committed to working together to improve the health of every mom and baby. Because when communities work together, even the toughest problems can be solved.

Signature Chefs Auction is sponsored in part by Dacabra, Hudson Advisors, Lockton Dunning, TM Advertising and FOX 4. For a full list of sponsors and to register for the event, visit
