(WDAY TV) - What a turnout for babies and soup! Hundreds showed up for the 8th annual Bowls for Babies project. It benefits the March of Dimes.

Those buying a ticket had a chance to get a ceramic bowl created by local businesses and school children. March of Dimes educates people about the benefits of good pre-natal care and the group supports research into premature birth.

“Their mission is to educate moms before babies are conceived about the importance of health and vitamins so their goal is to decrease prematurely and have healthier babies.”

It is estimated pre-mature births in the United States cost 26-billion dollars a year.
