SANTA BARBARA, Calif., April 12, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Vitamin Shoppe and Nature's Value Inc. are inviting the public for the first time to participate in the 7th Annual Vitamin Angels Benefit Golf Outing. The golf outing, which takes place on Monday, May 2 at Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey, raises funds in support of Vitamin Angels. Vitamin Angels is a 501(c) (3) charity that fights childhood malnutrition by providing nutritional support across the critical window of a child's development from conception through age five. Thanks to strong support, along with funds raised from the Golf Outing and the cost-efficiency of the organization, funds raised could bring the total benefit of the annual events to more than 10 million children this year.
"We are excited to support another million children while having fun, making connections and remembering why we are all in an industry that has at its heart a desire to help others live better lives," said Doug Jones, Chief Merchandising Officer for the Vitamin Shoppe. "Vitamin Angels has delivered life-saving and life-changing nutrients to a growing number of children and moms in our country and across the globe, and we hope you will join us this year to do it again."
The Vitamin Shoppe and Nature's Value have supported the Vitamin Angels Benefit Golf Outing since 2010. Both companies hope that by inviting the general public to participate even more funds will be raised to support Vitamin Angels and its mission.
The day of golf begins with a 12 p.m. shotgun start and culminates with an awards dinner. The cost to participate begins at $1,000. Those interested in attending or sponsoring the event can do so by registering at vitaminangels.org/east-coast-golf-outing.
Vitamin Angels helps at-risk populations in need—specifically pregnant women, new mothers, and children under five—gain access to lifesaving and life changing vitamins and minerals. Vitamin Angels works to reach underserved communities across the U.S. and in more than 50 countries around the world. Vitamin Angels has received eight four-star ratings from Charity Navigator for Financial Health, Accountability and Transparency. To learn more, visit vitaminangels.org.
