South African WOMEN for WOMEN   ANNUAL AWARDS GALA 2010  

2009 S.A.W.W. AWARD • Excellence in Sport: Caster Semenya

March 6, 2010

Dominion Ballroom, Sheraton Centre Toronto, 123 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M5H 2M9

South African Women for Women (S.A.W.W. ) celebrates South African Women's Day by honouring the accomplishments of outstanding South African women, and acknowledging the support of friends of the organization.

Every year S.A.W.W. salutes unique women and their efforts to make our communities, our villages and our world a better place. These women are often stories of triumph over adversity. It is important not only to applaud these women, but to learn from them. Engaging their wisdom, and from that, empowering our own individual spirit, and societal progress. S.A.W.W. hosts an annual event as the forum for this unique and meaningful occasion. It is the highlight of our year and our main fund-raiser.

You will be inspired by a superb evening of celebration, engaged by our speakers, and entertained by superb musicians. Please join us for an unforgettable evening that celebrates the triumph of women.

Over the past thirteen years, S.A.W.W. has recognised unique women who have inspired and served their communities in areas including education, health, the arts and liberation movements and other areas. This year we award our S.A.W.W. Award to a remarkable young woman, the South African athlete Caster Semenya. Despite the controversy surrounding her outstanding performance at the 2009 World Athletics Championships, 18 year old Caster’s achievements continue to inspire young girls and women across the globe. Caster will be joining us at the Gala to accept the 2010 S.A.W.W. Award for Excellence in Sport.
