 “We are honored that we have the opportunity to recognize such notable community leaders,” said Event Chair, Jennifer Robbins, CEO of Anderson Robbins Research.  “Their commitment to the March of Dimes mission and the population we serve is inspiring.  What better way to enjoy a wonderful meal and fun evening than by raising money for the health of our babies.”
