Folks got together at the Elks Lodge in Bangor Thursday evening for the 8th annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction.Several area restaurants donated food for the event. There was also a live and silent auction.The March of Dimes raises money to help ensure all babies are born healthy.Susan Faloon, a member of the committee who put the event together, says that this cause is dear to her heart. “A lot of people don’t realize the March of Dimes has invested more than 6.5 million dollars in down syndrome research, and that’s important to me because I have a four year old son with down syndrome and so I’m hoping to learn more about down syndrome as well as hoping that other moms will have an opportunity to learn more about birth defects so they are better able to handle them with they do get that news.”Included as one of the prizes in the live auction was the chance to do the forecast live with Todd Simcox here on TV5.
