Donna de Varona, Olympic gold medalist, Emmy award winning broadcaster, President DAMAR Inc., First President of the Women’s Sports Foundation

Yolanda Jackson has simply devoted her life to women in sports. Year in and year out she has been the face of the Women’s Sports Foundation when inviting the most successful as well as  upcoming athletes to the Foundations’ major fund raising event, the Annual Salute to Women in Sport, held in New York City.  When not making sure the dinner is packed with who’s who in women’s sports she has been the go to person in keeping women’s sports issues high on the United Nations agenda as well as on the minds of legislators in Washington D. C. She has not only built the bridge between athletes, sponsors and advocates she has kept it.
