The March of Dimes will hold Starkvilleâ€™s first Golden Triangle Signature Chefâ€™s Auction at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 17 at Mississippi State Universityâ€™s Hunter Henry Center, raising funds to prevent and manage premature births by bringing together Starkvilleâ€™s top chefs.
Wendy Parker, community director for March of Dimes in Mississippi, said March of Dimes has held chefâ€™s auctions across the nation for the past 10 years. In previous years, she said Starkville had hosted the organizationâ€™s March for Babies, a fundraiser walk set during the spring, but no March for Babies was scheduled this year.
