Proceeds from Signature Chefs Auction will benefit the March of Dimes campaign to reduce the rate of premature births, birth defects, and other serious threats to babies' health. More than half a million babies are born too soon each year. 193 of these babies are born each week in Louisiana. That's why it is so important for local events like this to support the March of Dimes efforts to help prevent birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
