Vitamin Angels hosted its Twenty Year Celebration at the VIP Diamond Club at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Drawing a crowd of over 700 people, guests enjoyed food and drinks, and had the chance to use batting cages, take pictures in a party photo booth and more. Guests were also treated to a fireworks display and a surprise flash mob dance.

Featured speaker Howard Schiffer, president and founder of Vitamin Angels, reflected on 20 years of providing children and mothers in need with essential vitamins. He spoke to the importance of strong relationships and good people in making the charity successful, stating, “It makes it possible for just 40 people to be reaching 40 million children and moms today.” It was noted that in addition to its international work, Vitamin Angels reached over 100,000 kids with its domestic program last year.

Receiving special honors with the Founding Sponsor Award for their 20 years of support for the group were Rainbow Light and NOW Foods.
