March of Dimes prepares to surpass fundraising milestone

Posted by wlpo on November 1, 2012

Area chefs prepared special dishes for the 12th annual March of Dimes Signature Chef’s Auction.  Nearly 500 tickets were sold for the event Thursday night at Celebration’s 150 in La Salle.

The night is a large fundraiser for the March of Dimes.  There will be live and silent auctions, raffles and games.

Lori Christopherson with the March of Dimes said they were hoping to raise $125,000 Thursday night.  If they do, they will have raised more than $1 million in their 12-year history.  Miller Group Charitable Trust matched up to $5,000 in bids during the “Fund a Mission” portion of the auction.  Miller Group Media includes AM 1220 WLPO, 99.3 WAJK, 96.5 The Wolf, The NewsTribune and Agrinews.
