Join us as we honor nursing excellence and pay tribute to the tireless efforts of nurses throughout the community while also raising valuable funds for the March of Dimes. Over the course of 10 to 12 weeks, nurses are nominated by colleagues, supervisors or the families they have served. At a culminating awards event, the March of Dimes then celebrates the profession and recognizes the most outstanding nurses in 15 diverse categories.
TABLE AND TICKET PURCHASES ARE NOW CLOSED.
