The March of Dimes, Georgia Chapter presents their inaugural event, The Farmer & The Chef. The event is a fundraiser supporting our mission for stronger, healthier babies. This is the premiere dining event for the March of Dimes, Georgia Chapter, and their patrons include upscale business leaders from throughout the Atlanta community. The Farmer and The Chef will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead.
The premise of the event is simple: pair local farmers with local chefs for a night of unique fine dining. While the event is a fundraiser for the March of Dimes, they are also helping to create sustainable relationships between local farmers and chefs, while reinforcing the movement of eating healthy which is something the March of Dimes believes in and promotes to women who are considering pregnancy.
The event itself will feature an exciting live and silent auction with packages ranging from fine dining, vacation getaways, sports packages and spa packages, just to name a few. Guests will enjoy a fantastic four-course dinner prepared by the local chefs using ingredients from local farmers.

Join Special Emcee for the event and Weather Channel Meteorologist Crystal Egger as she shares her story:
"For reasons I may never know, my daughter, Sayla Rae flew into this world exactly three months ahead of her due date, weighing a whopping 1 lb 14 ounces. The most exciting time of my life turned upside down in an instant. She went on to spend 3 agonizing months covered with tubes inside a lonely incubator in the NICU. Now, at age 3, she is healthy, energetic, smart, and absolutely perfect. She will forever be my miracle baby and proof that angels are everywhere!"

"I am thrilled to be involved with the March of Dimes, an organization close to my heart. I look forward to sharing Sayla's inspirational story, raising awareness about prematurity and providing hope to other preemie families."
