Vitamin Angels will be hosting a special cocktail event on March 10th at the VIP Diamond Club of Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California. The event, dubbed the ‘League of Angels,’ invites attendees to step up to the plate in the fight against malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies.
Lack of essential nutrients is responsible for one-third of the deaths of children under five worldwide. Vitamin Angels partners with companies large and small to obtain the vitamins and funding to reach children and pregnant or lactating mothers in 43 countries worldwide, including domestically. Having reached nearly 25 million children in 2010, the organization is now setting its sights on doubling that number and reaching 50 million children a year in the next 3-5 years.
“We promise an inspiring and wonderful evening. I will have just returned from Laos where we are reaching almost 25,000 children, almost 100% of the province we are working in. I look forward to sharing the amazing story of how our project in Laos began,” said Howard Schiffer, President and Founder of Vitamin Angels. He continued "Our guests will have the opportunity to meet Betsy Rono, one of our field partners, who will speak about the incredible work being done in Western Kenya all the way to the Ugandan border."
The Vitamin Angels event will feature baseball themed giveaways, including the opportunity for guests to send in their photos to be featured on the stadium Jumbo-tron during the event, and a special address from Founder, Howard Schiffer.
