Nick Killoran, Great North Insurance, and Michelle Killoran, Scheels, co-chaired the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction on September 22, 2016 at the Avalon West in Fargo, ND. This event highlighted the culinary excellence of this area’s finest chefs and their restaurants, while the live auction offered unique experiences and travel packages! Auction items included a signed Nike NFL Draft #1 Carson Wentz jersey, a trip to Maui, a trip the Cabo San Lucas, and Christmas Dinner for both local NICU’s (Sanford and Essentia Health).
The March of Dimes’ mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality. “As parents of three young children, we are excited to see the continued research, education, legislative and programmatic accomplishments occurring right here in North Dakota by this impressive organization” said Nick Killoran.
The event raised over $173,500.00 for the March of Dimes which is an 86% increase over last year’s event.
