You know how they say, “If you can’t handle the heat stay out of the kitchen”? Well, we say, if you want to save some sweet babies stay out of the kitchen…and head to the foodie-palooza that is the upcoming March of Dimes Cobb Signature Chefs Auction.
At the September 18th event at the Marietta Country Club, you’ll taste over-the-top delicious treats, support a phenomenal cause, and you won’t have to wash a single dish! The annual highly anticipated event is a food-lovers paradise with over a dozen top-rated chefs serving signature nibbles to a cocktail-swank crowd.
a little namedropping … and a whole lot of good food!
The 2014 restaurant roster includes The Butcher The Baker, Gabriel’s Restaurant & Bakery, Creations by Cookie, Fusco’s, Zeal, and more. The honorary chef chair is Marietta restaurant darling and Paula Deen’s cousin Johnnie Gabriel.
Last year, the event raised over $70,000 to support the March of Dimes mission to promote healthy pregnancies and babies. This year, the 2014 ambassador family is Andy and Staci Thompson, their son Cooper and daughters Charleigh and Savannah.
The Thompson’s family’s journey is an amazing story of hope. After Cooper’s birth, the couple experienced three tragic miscarriages and were told that another baby would be unlikely. So, they were floored to discover that Staci was expecting twin girls! Charleigh and Savannah were born early at 33 weeks and spent 16 days in the NICU. Amazingly, they celebrated their first birthday on May 13—happy and completely healthy.
Through their experience, Staci has become an ardent fan of the March of Dimes. “The research and support of this organization is life changing, literally,” she says.
