Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
Private Label Nutraceuticals announces their sponsorship of the 23rd Annual BIG-TO-DO Fundraiser, held from 2-6 pm on February 9 on Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain Park. Hosted by Visiting Nurse Health System, this event benefits The Children’s Program, which is dedicated to providing hospice care to children and their families during the end of life.
Through sponsorship of the BIG-TO-DO, Visiting Nurse provides children’s hospice services designed to maintain optimal quality of life for children living with terminal illnesses. Visiting Nurse’s mission is to improve the lives of more than 27,000 patients and their families served annually.
Visiting Nurse provides in-home care, as well as inpatient care at the Hospice Atlanta Center. Because of the significant expenses related to pediatric care, many insurance providers do not cover the full portion of costs related to pediatric care. The BIG-TO-DO fundraiser, along with the support of generous individuals, foundations, and corporations, allows Visiting Nurse to provide compassionate, quality care to all who need their services, regardless of diagnosis or ability to pay.
“This donation will make a tremendous difference in the lives of children and families facing terminal illnesses,” says Bjarte Rene, CEO of Private Label Nutraceuticals. “Manufacturing top-quality nutritional supplements is only part of our commitment to health – we also truly believe that supporting the well-being of our surrounding community is critical to the success of both our people and business.”
“The Children’s Program cares for pediatric patients regardless of their diagnosis or ability to pay. In most cases, reimbursement from Medicaid or private insurance covers only half of the costs of care,” said Dawn Dwyer, Co-Chair of the event. “The BIG-TO-DO is one way all of us can help these families, and at the same time enjoy a day of winter fun. We are very grateful for everyone involved.”
