DSEA SupplySide East Fundraising Dinner to Feature New Initiatives

Sponsorships by Capsugel and The Vitamin Shoppe Allow All Proceeds to Go to DSEA Programs

SECAUCUS, NJ – The Dietary Supplement Education Alliance (DSEA) fundraising dinner at SupplySide East will be held on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00pm in the renowned Park & Orchard Restaurant near the Meadowlands. The dinner is co-sponsored by Capsugel and The Vitamin Shoppe.

Dinner attendees will be privy to news on two major DSEA initiatives. First, attendees will hear the highlights of the new Lewin Group Health Impact Report. This report focuses on the health status of diabetes patients who take supplements. In addition, attendees will receive the advance release of the new DSEA Field Guide to Herbs. This guide is a handy new reference to help legislators, media and consumers feel confident about the safety and efficacy of herbal products.

The Park & Orchard restaurant offers “an incredible international range of food and wine, with an unusual attention to both great value and healthy menu selections.” It has received numerous honors, including:

  • "America's Top Restaurants" - Zagat Survey
  • "Grand Award Winner" - Wine Spectator
  • “Critics Choice Award” – New York Times
The generous co-sponsorship from Capsugel and The Vitamin Shoppe ensures that 100 percent of the proceeds from the $250 per person/ $2,500 per table 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 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.”

DSEA, formed in 2001 to communicate the benefits of dietary supplements, is a not for profit organization supported by over 100 companies within the dietary supplement industry.
