MANCHESTER, NH – On Monday, October 19th at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford, NH, Bill Binnie, President of Binnie Media, will join Ben Gamache, President of Gamache Properties, as co-chair of the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction. The event brings together the best in area food and beverage purveyors for a delectable and entertaining evening where guests also bid on a unique assortment of live and silent auction packages to raise awareness and funds for the March of Dimes.
In his role as co-chair, Binnie will promote the event and share his mission story to motivate and inspire giving in support of the March of Dimes mission to give all babies a strong and healthy start.
“With premature birth being the #1 killer of all babies we need to do everything we can to support this cause,” said Bill Binnie, President of NH1, Binnie Media and Honorary Event Co-Chair. “I am proud to support the March of Dimes and their work for moms and babies.”
As our presenting sponsor, Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD), knows all too well premature birth is the most serious infant health problem in the United States today. It affects nearly 400,000 babies nationwide each year, including 1 in 10 babies in New Hampshire. Babies born too soon are more likely to die or have lifelong disabilities. The March of Dimes is committed to reversing this trend by funding research to find the causes of premature birth and developing strategies to prevent it. Guests will hear first-hand the impact the March of Dimes has had on the lives of the Breen family of Derry, NH.
