Santa Barbara, CA, USA – On March 6th, Vitamin Angels, a global aid organization that protects millions of women and young children from malnutrition, hosted a 25th Anniversary Celebration at Disney’s California Adventure® Park. Nearly 350 guests from the natural products industry and beyond as well as Founding Partners Rainbow Light and NOW Foods celebrated Vitamin Angels’ milestone achievement. The event raised nearly $300,000 for the cause.
In a speech highlighting the successes of the organization over the past quarter century, Vitamin Angels’ Founder and President / CEO, Howard Schiffer thanked supporters and called upon them for a renewed commitment to further the organization’s efforts.
"Vitamin Angels is now poised at the beginning of a new dawn. You are helping us to change public health on a global scale,” said Schiffer. “We’ve grown from reaching thousands of children, to last year reaching over 70 million children and mothers. With your continued support, we can make the dream I had twenty-five years ago to end malnutrition, a reality.”
