On Tuesday, September the 28th, Daphne Nederhorst and five team members attended the 2010 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award Gala.

Among the 1,300 attendees at the red carpet event were local celebrities, including British Columbia’s Premier, Gordon Campbell and key business leader, Milton Wong. Sawa’s Founder, Daphne Nederhorst was selected as one of the 24 finalists for the prestigious award. Of this milestone Daphne said, “It is a true honour to be among the leading business entrepreneurs of British Columbia. It brings great recognition to our work of solving extreme poverty in a new way and it allows us to explore exciting partnerships in the corporate sector. This award is a true testament to the hard work of my team. Without them, I would not be here tonight.”
