Our founder and managing principal, Kate Sirignano, has always been involved in numerous philanthropic endeavors, but none have been as close to her heart as the March of Dimes.
Since the birth of her son in 2014, Kate has become very involved with March of Dimes, and was presented with their 2015 leadership award at a special dinner ceremony this past weekend.
Last fall, Kate served as the 2015 Chairperson of the Signature Chefs Auction, which raised a record-breaking $115,000 and once again has signed on for 2016.
Kate added, “I am honored to be able to serve as the Chair of this year’s Signature Chefs Auction and to support the March of Dimes in their incredible endeavors. My own son was born 15 weeks premature, weighing just over one pound, and underwent multiple surgeries and medical procedures during his 112 day stay in the NICU. The March of Dimes supported us in numerous ways during a very difficult time and we are humbled to be able to help pay it forward in support of other families who benefit from this wonderful organization.”
On Saturday, Kate, among other volunteers and donors, received the Leadership Award at the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Spirit of Giving Celebration.
Kate wants to thank March of Dimes Connecticut for a wonderful evening and for honoring her with their 2015 leadership award.
