On Thursday, March 6, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m., Vitamin Angels will host its 20 Year Anniversary Celebration in the VIP Diamond Club at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The event coincides with the opening night of the Natural Products Expo West, being held March 6-9, at the Anaheim Convention Center.

“Twenty years is a milestone for Vitamin Angels and our industry,” said Howard Schiffer, President and Founder of Vitamin Angels. “This year we are working to reach 40 million children and moms across the US and all over the world! This has only been possible because of the incredible support Vitamin Angels has received from the natural products industry. Come celebrate this incredible accomplishment and join us for an amazing evening that shows what a small group of very dedicated people can achieve!”

The event is open to the public. The organization anticipates over 400 executives from the natural products industry to be in attendance at the celebration. The evening features opportunities for the guests to capture their memories in a photo booth, take a swing in the batting cages, throw out pitches in the bullpen, experience highlights from three international trips made by the organization in 2013, and participate in a surprise group activity only being shared with registered attendees. Guests will also enjoy an open bar and a variety of appetizers.

In 2013, Vitamin Angels reached over 30 million children in approximately 45 countries, including the United States, with lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals. The organization has established a goal of reaching 40 million children in 2014.
