Heritage Auctions Renews Dollars For Dimes Campaign To Benefit The March Of Dimes

Dallas auctioneer will donate $1 for every dime coin sold in 2014

DALLAS — Heritage Auctions has renewed its pledge to donate $1 for every dime coin it sells in 2014 to benefit the mission and vision of March of Dimes, one of America's most beloved charities. Heritage's Dollars for Dimes campaign raised more than $11,000 last year for the March of Dimes Dallas Division and its fight against premature birth, birth defects, and infant mortality.

"Few charities are nobler than the March of Dimes commitment to stronger, healthier babies," said Erica Denton, Director of Institutional Development and Charity Auctions at Heritage Auctions. "Our Dollars for Dimes campaign ensures every new treasure that finds a home will support this effort and Heritage is committed to growing this program in the future."

In 2013, Heritage clients purchased 11,584 dimes through Heritage's Signature and Internet coin auctions and the donation will be used to fund important research, programs, and communication efforts for the non-profit organization. Dollars for Dimes is one of several charitable efforts underway at Heritage, the most recent of which raised more than $137,000 for the John Wayne Cancer Foundation held at an event in conjunction with the John Wayne Film Festival. Last year, Heritage raised more than $500,000 for charities nationwide.

The March of Dimes Foundation is a United States nonprofit organization that works to improve the health of mothers and babies. It was founded by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1938 to combat polio. The foundation's annual fundraising event requested that every child donate a dime. Originally known as the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, the name "March of Dimes" was coined by comedian Eddie Cantor, playing on the name of a popular newsreel series of the 1930s, "The March of Time."

The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. For more than 75 years, moms and babies have benefited from March of Dimes research, education, vaccines, and breakthroughs. Find us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
