WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, May 15, March of Dimes hosted its 42nd Annual March of Dimes Gourmet Gala at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. The National Association of Chain Drug Stores Foundation (NACDS Foundation) returned for its eighth year as a Platinum Sponsor of the evening.

March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies. March of Dimes supports research, leads programs, and provides education and advocacy so that every family can have the best possible start. Building on a successful 86-year legacy, March of Dimes supports every pregnant person and every family.

This year, the Gourmet Gala united 55 Members of Congress for a cook-off competition, more than 100 sponsors, and more than 700 guests. The event, which raised nearly $1.5 million, highlighted the commitment of the community to support March of Dimes’ advocacy, research, and education nationwide.

During the event, Steven Anderson delivered remarks in his capacity as chairman of the NACDS Foundation.
