Join us for two nights of culinary excellence in Rutland and Burlington, for the Signature Chefs Auctions to benefit the March of Dimes Vermont. “Every year more than 15 million babies are born prematurely; a million will die before their first birthday as a result. With your gift at Signature Chefs to the March of Dimes, you can help to fund the research, education, and support to ensure more babies celebrate their birthday.”
The event is a culinary showcase, featuring Rutland and Burlington’s top culinary masters. This rare opportunity is made possible by participating chefs graciously donating their time and talent to create a food experience beyond any available at a single location in Vermont. Each tasting is thoughtfully created to tantalize the palette of even the savviest “foodie” and highlight the chef’s unique and exceptional talents. Amidst a lively party atmosphere and exciting entertainment, guests will enjoy exquisite cuisine, spirited cocktails and enticing raffle and auction packages.
We will be attending both events and representing the wines of Constellation Brands and the beers of Switchback Brewing Company. We will be also be making a donation to March of Dimes to help improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
Interested in becoming a sponsor? By purchasing a table or donating during Fund the Mission you are helping to ensure one day all babies will be born healthy. Contact Brooke Duffy BDuffy@marchofdimes.org for sponsorship levels and how you can get involved.
