Anyone with deep pockets who is planning on being in the NYC area a week from tonight might consider heading over to the Waldorf-Astoria for the Women's Sports Foundation's Annual Salute to Women in Sports Awards Gala and Auction. For enough money you can purchase a spot at a table with a champion athlete.
The money, of course, goes to a worthy cause. WSF sponsors a multitude of programs and opportunities aimed at bringing the beneficial effects of sports and physical activities into the lives of all girls.
Plus you will get to see the Parade of Athletes which will include Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Dominique Dawes, Dawn Riley, Gretchen Bleiler and Jennie Finch. And you'll be there live and in person to see who wins Sportswoman of the Year and the Billie Jean King Contribution Award.
