Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 23, 2009
HealthCorps®, the national health movement dedicated to the fight against child obesity hosts their annual Gala fundraiser, The Green Garden Gala on April 30. This exclusive event will be held at the spectacular World Financial Center Winter Garden in New York City. The event will honor John Catsimatidis, Joel Klein, and Ben Vereen for their significant contributions to the health and well-being of American youth. LL Cool J will present the "Music for a Better Life Award" to Quincy Jones this year and Wyclef Jean will be among the musical guests.
HealthCorps empowers teens through health educational and mentoring programs to make positive wellness choices in their lives. Verve, Vemma's popular energy supplement, offers a healthy energy drink option for teens. Distinguished by Vemma's special formula, Verve is a hip alternative to the highly caffeinated, non-nutritive options saturating the market today. As a principal sponsor of HealthCorps, Vemma's founder and CEO, BK Boreyko, is committed to creatively filling the nutritional gap in teenagers' diets to create a positive impact on the health of the next generation.
HealthCorps represents the official charity of Vemma®, which strongly supports the HealthCorps mission to engage and educate America's youth and their families to "Eat Smart and Exercise." HealthCorps gives knowledge, tools and support to American youth, their families, and their communities to enhance health and mental resilience.
For the past three years, BK and Vemma have enjoyed working with HealthCorps to introduce the HealthCorps model of education and prevention to more schools around the nation. "Vemma's support of HealthCorps ignites such excitement in me because together we have the ability to positively influence and further our reach toward healthy generations. This country's high school teens should be educated about fitness, proper nutrition, but most importantly how to establish healthy living habits in their own environment. As a company dedicated to making a positive difference in families' lives, I am honored to help HealthCorps carry out its mission of empowering America's youth to make healthier choices," affirms BK Boreyko.
Vemma will supply 650 goody bags for attendees of the Green Garden Gala. They will include an assortment of Verve, Verve Energy Shots and Vemma, its clinically studied liquid nutrition formula. Verve will be also be stocked at the cocktail bars for guests to enjoy alone or in mixed cocktails. A limited number of tickets are still available for this event.
