For more information, contact us and select Marketing/Public Relations.

La Leche League International is thrilled to announce that the Founders of La Leche League have received an award from Health for Humanity, an international health related not-for-profit organization based in Wilmette, Illinois, USA. The award has been presented to the seven Founders for their demonstration of commitment to the principles of the unity and nobility of humanity and the equality of men and women.

The Founders will receive this prestigious award on March 31, 2007 at the Opera Gala, an annual event sponsored by Health for Humanity. The Opera Gala, a black-tie optional event, will be held the evening of Saturday, March 31 at the Swissotel on Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois, USA and tickets are $200 each. For every two tickets purchased by an LLL Leader, member or supporter, LLLI will receive one ticket free. This will provide the Founders with complimentary tickets. The evening will include dinner and music by the members of V.O.I.C.Experience.

Health for Humanity is also willing to reserve a block of rooms at the hotel at a special price if enough people are interested. To indicate your interest in a hotel room or tickets please visit Health for Humanity's website for more information.

Please share this news with anyone you think may be interested. What a wonderful way to honor the Founders and celebrate 50 years of helping mothers and babies!
