Funds raised by Signature Chefs Auction support lifesaving research and educational programs in Massachusetts. Recently March of Dimes funded Centering Pregnancy to initiate group prenatal care in order to make care more patient and community centered.

Premature birth is the number one killer of babies. It affects more than half a million babies nationwide each year. 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.

The March of Dimes thanks Signature Chefs Auction sponsors: Fallon Health, St. Vincent Hospital, Sullivan Benefits, Milford Regional Medical Center, Fidelity Bank, Becker College, Women’s Health of Central MA, Neonatology Associates, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
