WSEN’s Denise Saul interviews some of the extraordinary female athletes, on the Red Carpet, in attendance for the WSF’s 35th Annual Salute to Women in Sports.
The Women’s Sports Foundation (WSF) honored the most accomplished women in sports and the girls they inspire with ESPN’s Bonnie Bernstein as the host of the 32nd Annual Salute to Women in Sports Awards Gala.
WSF Founder Billie Jean King, WSF President Laila Ali, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Joe Torre and Academy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter were among the high profile attendees alongside notable athletes such as Venus Williams (Tennis), Maya Moore (Basketball), Mallory Weggemann (Swimming), Michelle Kwan (Figure Skating), and members of the 2011 U.S. Women’s National Soccer team.
“It is remarkable to have this many influential, powerful and strong Women in one room – there is really no other event that compares to the Women’s Sports Foundation’s Annual Salute,” said Women’s Sports Foundation Founder, Billie Jean King (above photo, (r). “I am so proud of every single one of these women and the great success they have accomplished thus far.”
