Vitamin Angels is hosting its annual Celebration of Angels gala this year on October 15 at the Harvard Club of Boston in celebration of reaching 20 million children in 2010 with the essential nutrients necessary for good health.
Lack of essential nutrients is responsible for one-third of all maternal and child deaths worldwide. Vitamin Angels partners with companies large and small to obtain the vitamins and funding to reach children and pregnant or lactating mothers in 40 countries worldwide, including domestically.
This year also marks the 5th anniversary of the Celebration of Angels event, held in honor of Vitamin Angels' supporters in the dietary supplement and natural products industries who have shown all that is possible when companies unite for a common cause: improving the lives of children worldwide.
"This year could be our most important Celebration of Angels event ever. Together as an industry we are reaching 20 million children in the US and around the world," said Howard Schiffer, President of Vitamin Angels. "We are now at an inflection point and on October 15th, we want to share with everyone what is now possible."
The Vitamin Angels event will feature guest speaker, Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic and co-author of The Art of Possibility. Musical guests from the Berklee School of Music and the Boston City Singers will be performing. Speakers from across the industry will be present to join in the celebration.
