The Signature Chefs Auction


The Signature Chefs Auction is the annual gourmet extravaganza for the Broward March of Dimes. Now in its 17th year, regulars know the routine:

Sample scrumptious fare from 15 handpicked chefs from Greater Fort Lauderdale’s finest restaurants, who prepare samples of their signature dishes and showcase the latest food trends.

As in the past, there will be live music and opportunities to bid on unique silent and live auction items. But expect this year to be special: The March of Dimes is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2013.

Says event chairman Bob Birdsong, President & CEO, OK Generators: “What a thrill it is to chair this year’s Signature Chefs Auction. We have an impressive lineup of local chefs and culinary innovators. Our committee has planned an extraordinary evening that will benefit the March of Dimes’ mission of helping improve birth outcomes to increase the number of stronger, healthier babies, and celebrate the March of Dimes’ 75th Anniversary.”

This year’s chefs hail from The Capital Grille, Grille 66, Blue Moon Fish Company, Chef’s Palette at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Steak 954@ W Hotel, Market 17, Wild Sea at Riverside Hotel, Fort Lauderdale Ritz Carlton, Truluck’s, Publix Apron’s and Susie’s Scrumptious Sweets.



Every year in the United States, more than 500,000 babies are born too soon – 32,000 of them in Florida. The March of Dimes, both nationally and in its Florida chapter, works to improve the health of babies while also supporting families if something does go wrong. 

The March of Dimes Florida Chapter also partners with local medical groups and organizations to establish guidelines for how to care for pregnant women and premature babies. And it provides grants to researchers working to understand birth defects and premature birth – and to find treatments and solutions.
