This September, the March of Dimes North Dakota Market will be holding their annual Signature Chefs Auction and fundraising event with the help of event chairs Nick Killoran of Great North Insurance and his wife Michelle Killoran of SCHEELS.

Nick Killoran of Great North Insurance and Michelle Killoran of SCHEELS will chair this year’s event.

Guests will be able to enjoy an evening of culinary excellence with 10-12 area chefs cooking up creations for you to sample. After a 90-minute tasting experience, a live and silent auction will take place, along with cash donations for a local Fund the Mission cause. Attendants will have the opportunity to enjoy dessert while raising their paddles to help babies, mothers and families in our community.

And the prizes at this auction are nothing short of top notch. With things up such as a trip to Maui or a signed Carson Wentz NFL Draft jersey (see below)–one of five in existence–up for bidding, it’s clear that this event is set to raise some big bucks for a phenomenal cause. Nick Killoran stated that the event raised around $93,000 last year and that they are hoping to raise north of $125,000 this year.

“As parents of three young children, we are excited to see the continued research, education, legislation and programmatic accomplishments occurring right here in North Dakota by this impressive organization,” said Nick Killoran.
