March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction

Accent Photographics was recently the official photographer on Oct. 22 for the 2008 March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction, a major annual fundraiser by the nonprofit organization. This year, the Mississippi Valley Division went all out and made this event a Mardi Gras celebration, held at the Isle of Capri in Bettendorf. Money raised the event goes toward helping babies born with birth defects – by way of medical equipment and/or treatment such as ventilators and intensive respiratory care units – as well as helping the families of premature babies by providing urgent-care information, coping kits and more. Here are a few favorites from the evening’s event:
