March of Dimes Auction

By Lauren Brock

There’s more than one way to save a life. Bids at the 2012 March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction can help the more than 9,000 babies born prematurely in South Carolina each year. Albert Bueno, president of GIS, is chairing this year’s auction, to be held Sunday, Nov. 4 at 6 p.m. at the Embassy Suites. The evening will begin with generous samplings of each participating chef’s signature dish. During the cocktail and sampling reception, guests have the opportunity to bid on silent auction packages donated by participating restaurants and chefs, which include Cotton Grill, Mr. Friendly’s, Blue Marlin, Cupcake, Capital City Club, Brookland Banquet Center and more. Tickets for the event are $150 per person or $1,500 for a corporate table of eight.
