CEHN Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Gala

Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) is a national non-profit organization that has been working for 25 years to protect children from environmental hazards such as air pollution related to asthma, lead poisoning related to learning disabilities, and pesticide exposures related to childhood cancer.

The Board and Staff of CEHN invite you to join us to celebrate CEHN’s 25th Anniversary Gala and Awards Event, to be held on October 13  at the Josephine Butler Parks Center, in Washington, DC, and to consider your school to be an official sponsor.

Sponsors will be included in promotional materials in advance of and during gala festivities to showcase your organization’s commitment to children’s environmental health.
