First Japan-based Effort Supports Family Center Near Medial Center in Yokohama
LEHI, UT— June 15, 2006 —XanGo LLC, recognized creator of the mangosteen supplement category, has recently expanded its charitable commitment to the Asian market. Building upon the momentum of its recent market opening in Japan, XanGo is supporting the construction of a family lodging facility at the Kanagawa Children’s Medical Center in Yokohama. XanGo’s charitable mission is to support and improve the nations and communities where the company operates, with a special emphasis on improving the health, nutrition, education and safety for children around the world.
The new Kanagawa Family Center will provide housing and refuge to families of chronically or terminally ill children being treated at the nearby Children’s Medical Center. The new center will expand on the mission of the original center, opened in Yokohama in 1970, to meet the needs of patient families while children are receiving the highest quality of care and treatment.
To support the construction of the Kanagawa family facility, the medical center held a charity concert featuring international renowned pianist, Takhiro Seki, on June 2 in Yokohama.
During the concert program, Beverly Hollister, XanGo Japan chairperson, presented the medical center with a donation of $50,000 USD to support the charity event and construction costs. “The Founders of XanGo made charitable giving part of the company’s business plan and purpose from conception. We are seeing the benefits tonight from their vision, and I am honored to be involved with this worthwhile cause that will enrich children’s lives,” said Hollister.
XanGo Japan will continue to support the construction of this special family center throughout the course of its construction, concluded Hollister.
