Vitamin Angels and New Hope Natural Media are joining together to host the largest industry-wide event at Expo East to save the lives of children worldwide.
Lack of essential nutrients is responsible for one-third of all maternal and child deaths worldwide. Vitamin Angels closes that gap by partnering with natural product companies to obtain the vitamins and funding to reach millions of children under the age of five, and pregnant or lactating mothers worldwide.
Vitamin Angels will host its annual Celebration of Angels fundraiser on Friday, September 25, from 6:00-9:00 pm at the Boston Convention Center, Grand Ballroom, to coincide with the Natural Products Expo East. This year’s free event invites attendees to experience the difference they and their companies can make by partnering with Vitamin Angels in this global health initiative that benefits millions of children and proves that vital nutrients save lives.
This year, Vitamin Angels (vitaminangels.org) will celebrate their 15th anniversary and the 15 million children they plan to reach in 2010 with industry partners. Attendees will have an opportunity to donate in an interactive festival setting with live music and entertainment. A special performance by one of the most sought after Journey tribute bands, Captured, will make Celebration of Angels an experience like no other at Expo East this year.
“We are excited to give everyone at Expo East the opportunity to have fun, get involved and learn about the children we serve,” says Howard Schiffer, founder of Vitamin Angels. “This year’s event will allow attendees to see why 25 cents is the most important, life-saving contribution these children need from them this year.”
Vitamin Angels’ Celebration of Angels event would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors like: New Hope Natural Media, The Organic Center, Vitamin Shoppe, Purity Products, Lightlife, Lonza, Pure Encapsulations, Healthwell Ventures, Presence Marketing, UNFI, To Go Brands, Inc., New Chapter Organics, Whole Foods Magazine, Organic India, Perrigo, Novus and Vitaquest.
