Children’s Nutrition Program Of Haiti To Host Annual Benefit Dinner On March 20

Monday, February 17, 2020

The Children’s Nutrition Program of Haiti will host their annual awards ceremony and benefit dinner at Stratton Hall on March 20. This year’s theme is “Building a Firm Foundation – One Child at a Time.” The Legacy Reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m.
 
"Jan. 12 marked the 10th anniversary of the catastrophic earthquake that took the lives of over 200,000 people in Haiti," officials said. "The epicenter of that quake was in Leogane, just miles from the Children's Nutrition Program headquarters. To commemorate this event, the evening will invite attendees to remember the lives lost in the earthquake and celebrate the everyday heroes who continue to help Haiti to build a firm foundation. Proceeds from the night will further their work to prevent and treat malnutrition in Haiti." 
 
The keynote speaker will be Len Gengel, co-founder of Be Like Brit.

"Len's work in Haiti began in 2010, only months after his 19-year-old daughter, Britney, lost her life in Haiti's devastating earthquake," officials said. "Len's work reflects his inspiring commitment to honor her legacy by investing in Haiti's children."

The Deb Watlington Heart for Haiti award recognizes individuals who have given their heart, soul and time to fight against childhood malnutrition in Leogane. This year’s award will be presented to Dr. and Mrs. Chuck and Martha Sternbergh and Reverend and Mrs. John and Mary Talbird.
