On November 2nd at the Avalon Manor, Nicole Greene will have the opportunity to thank the March of Dimes and Methodist Hospitals for her miracle, her son Johnny, at the 8th annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs Tasting and Auction. Johnny Greene III was born 3 months early at Methodist Hospitals Southlake Campus on September 20, 2008. The tiny infant spent two and a half months in the neonatal intensive care unit where he was monitored and cared for around the clock. “I am so thankful and grateful to the nurses and physicians at Methodist Hospitals’ neonatal intensive care unit. I know that Johnny would not be the happy, healthy boy he is today without their constant care and attention,” stated Nicole. Nicole Greene, her husband and Johnny will attend the event as March of Dimes Ambassador Family.
Methodist Hospitals is proud to be a sponsor of the event and join the March of Dimes as the only hospital partner for the Northwest Indiana Division March of Dimes Healthy Baby Partnership. The event will feature tastings from 16 local chefs with a great silent auction and exciting live auction showcasing the chefs themselves. Funds raised by Signature Chefs Auction support lifesaving research and educational programs aimed at giving every baby a healthy start.
Methodist Hospitals shares the March of Dimes mission to improve the health of babies by preventing premature births, birth defects and infant mortality. Prematurity is the leading killer of babies in their first month of life and is a major cause of long-term health problems, including cerebral palsy, mental retardation, blindness, chronic lung problems and more.
The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies®, the March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
