DSEA Expo East Fundraising Dinner to Feature Release of Economic Impact Report

Sponsorship by Kemin Health Allows All Proceeds to Go to DSEA Initiatives

WASHINGTON, DC--The Dietary Supplement Education Alliance (DSEA) fundraising dinner at Expo East will be held on Saturday, September 17 at 7:00pm in the beautiful Occidental Restaurant on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC. The dinner is sponsored by Kemin Health, manufacturer of FloraGLO ® lutein.

Dinner attendees will be privy to the advance release of the DSEA 2005 Dietary Supplement Industry Economic Impact Report. This report, prepared in conjunction with Nutrition Business Journal, highlights the economic importance of the dietary supplement industry using the best available sources combined with advanced graphic information system technology for mapping. The result is an information-packed report that uses maps to make a strong visual statement and communicate more effectively than pages of statistics.

The Occidental Restaurant is a coveted spot for dinner in DC. Long known as the "second most famous address on Pennsylvania Avenue” the Occidental has been the place to see and be seen since 1906. This high-profile destination is the premier setting for Washington business and social dining, full of Washington’s power elite and international celebrities. Known for the volumes of history that exist in its countless photographs of famous patrons, the Occidental is also recognized for providing great food, wine and service. Chef Patrick Bazin’s cuisine has earned spots on many “Best Of” lists, including the Zagat Guide.

A generous sponsorship from Kemin Health ensures that 100 percent of the proceeds from the $250 per plate dinner will benefit DSEA education and communications initiatives. Tickets for the dinner can be reserved by contacting Deb Knowles at 941-349-9044 or [email protected].

“We expect the dinner to be another sell-out,” said Jon Benninger, president-elect of DSEA. “We always attract a wide variety of top industry executives interested in having a great time while supporting our important initiatives. This event is definitely the place to be.”
