Signature Chefs event helps babies while having fun

I volunteer with the March of Dimes, and each year we host a Signature Chefs event where local chefs showcase their finest creations. The event also features silent and live auctions, and a live entertainment.

Last year The Glitter Boys performed and everyone had a rockin’ good time. I hear they’ll be back again this year.

We all get dressed up and have a lot of fun the night of the event, this year Oct. 18, at the Thad Cochran Center in Hattiesburg.

But it takes a lot of work to get there. Planning for the next one starts almost immediately after the event ends!

We’re pretty organized. Checklists come out. Assignments are made. And we hit the ground running. It may be a lot of work, but we have a great time doing this. We get together once a month to go over what we’ve accomplished so far, make plans for the next month and go on from there.

Why do we do this? Mississippi has one of the highest rates of premature birth in the nation. Premature birth can result in all sorts of health problems for the baby, and a lot of stress for the parents.

Raising money for the March of Dimes helps in a number of areas: education, resources, advocacy, research and more.

And money raised locally stays locally.

This year’s theme is Viva, Las Baby! We’ve got a lot of fun things planned. I hope you can join us.
