IRVINE, Calif.Nutegrity has made a $20,000 contribution to Vitamin Angels, a portion of which will support Vitamin Angels’ 20-year anniversary celebration that will be held March 6 at the VIP Diamond Club at Angel Stadium after the opening day of Natural Products Expo West/Engredea. The remainder of the donation will aid a future fundraising event for the organization.
The event will feature 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.
“Nutegrity’s mission is to provide pure, sustainable human nutrition products and over the course of this year we will be working with several organizations, both nationally and locally, that focus on improving the nutrition and wellness of individuals in need," said Terry Olson, president, Nutegrity. “Vitamin Angels is an incredible organization that has helped populations around the globe who are at-risk for nutrient deficiencies and we are pleased to be able to support their efforts."
Vitamin Angels is dedicated to reducing child mortality worldwide by advancing availability, access and use of essential micronutrients, especially vitamin A, to newborns, infants and children under 5 years. In 2013 Vitamin Angels launched the “Give Childhood" campaign to raise awareness for childhood undernutrition, a problem that is attributed to 45% of all childhood deaths worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
