Regular readers of What's Up will know that Valerie Korinek has been nominated (by multiple people) for the Saskatoon YWCA Woman of Distinction Award. Since 1982, the award has recognized women who are “leaders, mentors, facilitators, communicators, supporters, and listeners.” On all those counts, Valerie is a most worthy nominee. The winner will be announced at the award banquet on June 8th.

Here are some further details regarding the gala event itself, which will be held at TCU Place (formerly Centennial Auditorium). Tickets are $90 each or $680 for a table of eight tickets: this is the YWCA's major fundraising event of the year, and all proceeds go towards supporting the programs and services it provides. Tickets can be purchased by calling 244-7034 ext 122 or 121, or by sending in the ticket order form. For more informationion, please email, or call the number above.
