15th Annual Chefs Auction a Huge Success
Posted by Brindley Beach Vacations and Sales | Sunday, February 28, 2016


Stephanie Baker, organizer of the 15th Annual Chefs Auction

Sometime about 8:30 the 300 or 400 guests at the Duck Woods Country Club raised a glass of champagne and toasted the 15th Anniversary of the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction. There are no pictures of the champagne toast—the photographer was raising a glass with everyone else.

By any standards it was a memorable night. The food was amazing . . . absolutely extraordinary. Trying to pick a winner is a lot like trying to decide which of your children is the favorite—every dish was unique and they were all good. 

The full list of winners will be posted tomorrow.

The evening though was really about the March of Dimes and the work the organization does to fund research into preventing birth defects and premature births. It was also about how the March of Dimes has helped to save the life of babies who otherwise would never have gone home.

The stories that were told were at once heartbreaking and uplifting—stories of families forced into the nightmare of living their worst fears and the triumph of spirit as a child who no one thought would live learns to walk and talk.

We’re not sure how much money was raised yet—the bidding during the auction was spirited and the silent auction had some great items in it this year.

It looks as though it was a very successful evening—one that will give hope to more parents in the future.
