Stephen Lukawski, global business development, sales and marketing director for Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals, has announced that the supplier has made a long-term commitment to supporting the charitable efforts of Vitamin Angels, a nonprofit organization committed to reaching underserved children under 5, pregnant women and new mothers with lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals globally.
"Through my career in the nutraceuticals industry, the idea, desire and practice of giving back, of providing healthy support to potentially millions of people, has been a significant part of who I am and how I do business,” Lukawsk said. “Fruit d'Or fully agrees with this sentiment, and immediately wanted to be a full partner in Vitamin Angels, doing what we can do, when we can, to nourish its objectives."
Among many activities such as monetary donations to Vitamin Angels, promoting Vitamin Angels at tradeshow exhibits, and providing support through the Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals websites (crannaturell.ca and fruit-dornutraceuticals.ca), Lukawski announced that he and Fruit d'Or plan to host a charitable golf tournament featuring National Hockey League star players, sometime in 2014.
Howard Schiffer, founder and president of Vitamin Angels, commented, “We are pleased to be partnering with Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals. Their generosity will help underserved children around the world survive, thrive and reach their full potential. What a wonderful gift.”
Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals joins a distinguished group of Canadian companies that are all committed to supporting the work of Vitamin Angels. "We have added to the strength of what we at Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals fondly call 'Team Canada' on behalf of the extraordinary Vitamin Angels organization," said Lukawski. "Joining these other fine companies strengthens the ability for Vitamin Angels to directly provide the necessary supplementation of millions of women and children worldwide."
Fruit d'Or Nutraceuticals is seeking cosponsors for the upcoming golf tournament to be held in beautiful, historic Quebec. Lukawski can be reached at 239.248.7118.
