WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, Bonnie Perdue, wife of U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), cohosted the 37th Annual March of Dimes Gourmet Gala at the National Building Museum. The record-breaking event attracted over 800 guests and raised more than $1.3 million for March of Dimes.

“March of Dimes is doing incredible work to support expecting mothers and ensure every child has the best possible start,” said Bonnie Perdue. “Through research, education, and advocacy, March of Dimes helps address the unique challenges that come with growing a family and creates brighter futures for all moms and babies. David and I are proud to partner with March of Dimes and will always share their commitment to promoting healthy families.”

Over the last year, Mrs. Perdue worked alongside a bipartisan, bicameral group of congressional spouses, including Julie Heinrich (NM), Lauren Kennedy (MA), and Suzanne Conaway (TX), to plan the event, secure sponsors, and raise funds. More than 50 U.S. Senators and Representatives attended the event and competed as celebrity chefs serving their favorite foods. Their recipes were judged and awards were given for six categories of achievement.

As a former school teacher, Mrs. Perdue is passionate about helping her community. She previously served on philanthropic boards and volunteered with many non-profits. Bonnie and David have two sons and three grandsons, and they first got involved in politics to create a better future for all of our nation’s kids and grandkids.
