(Greensboro, NC, August 22, 2017) —The March of Dimes is pleased to announce that the Ziehmer family- Dr. T. Richard, Gina, and their daughter, Zia, of Summerfield, NC will serve as Ambassadors for the 2017 Signature Chefs Auction in Greensboro, NC. The event—which highlights the culinary excellence of the area’s finest chefs, will be held on September 28, 2016 at 6 pm at the Empire Room.

The evening will begin with generous samplings of each chef’s signature dish. During this cocktail and sampling reception, guests have the opportunity to bid on silent auction packages.

“We are honored to be part of this event which will help the March of Dimes continue to give every baby a fighting chance,” Gina said. “Our family knows firsthand what the mission of March of Dimes is about. Zia was born full term, but due to complications at birth, she dealt with prolonged lack of oxygen and stayed for 16 days in Neonatal Intensive Care. The generous contributions of the restaurants, event sponsors and attendees will help fund vital research and community programs to save the lives of babies like Zia.”
