As part of Herbalife's annual “Extravaganza Latina,” which attracted more than 12,000 Latino independent Herbalife distributors from all over the country, the Herbalife Family Foundation (HFF) raised more than $114,000 for its Casa Herbalife program, which supports healthy nutrition for vulnerable children in more than 90 programs around the world.
“Our Herbalife community understands the importance of giving back to our community, and Latinos in particular, are proud supporters of the Herbalife Family Foundation," said Ibi Fleming, senior vice president and managing director of Herbalife North America, one of the nation's leading corporate executive Latinas. "Every year, they challenge themselves to beat their previous year's fundraising efforts to continue improving the communities where they live and work."
The Extravaganza is a yearly training and development event for independent Herbalife distributors. The weekend included seminars, training on financial literacy and business development by some of the company's top distributor leaders and company executives.
Herbalife's North America region held two Extravaganza events this year. Last weekend's Las Vegas Extravaganza attracted more than 11,000 Herbalife members and independent distributors from all over the U.S.
