2012 Signature Chefs Auction

On Thursday, October 4, 2012 more than 350 guests savored signature dishes from the Twin Cities’ top chefs to benefit the March of Dimes.

The 2012 Signature Chefs Auction set a new fundraising record for the Minneapolis event, raising $150,000 to help babies.

The highlight of the night was the bidding war over a northwoods vacation to Ludlow’s Island Resort on Lake Vermilion with your own personal chef, John Van House of Murray’s.

Guests included Medica CEO David Tilford and his wife Yuiko Kimura, and Wells Fargo Executive VP Jon Campbell and his wife Susan.

Money raised at the Minneapolis Signature Chefs Auction will help fund the expansion of the March of Dimes NICU Family Support program at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital. NICU Family support provides information and comfort to families with an infant in the newborn intensive care unit.

Top sponsors included Farmers Insurance, Wells Fargo and Medica.
