Join us for the Akron/Canton 16th Annual Signature Chefs Auction , Thursday, October 30, 2014 at the Piazza in Canton, Ohio. Each year, hundreds of distinguished members of the community join together to raise funds to help give every baby a healthy start in life while enjoying delectable tastings from over 20 of Akron/Canton’s finest chefs.
A masquerade theme enhances the culinary delights as you mingle with friends and colleagues and bid on fabulous, once-of-a-lifetime packages in the live and silent auction where funds raised support the March of Dimes mission: to improve the health of all babies by preventing premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality.
You are helping to make a difference!
