The Tammy Moyer Woman Of Worth Awards
Saturday, March 25, 1-4pm, Delta Grand Villa Ballroom

Advance Ticket Savings Available

The Awards were originally created to support the collaboration, celebration, connection and empowerment of women. Nominating her is one of the most powerful ways to appreciate and acknowledge another, in a way she will remember and be impacted by forever.

"It's always worthwhile to make others aware of their worth."
(Malcolm Forbes)

Why Tammy Moyer?

The Awards were renamed the Tammy Moyer Woman Of Worth Awards to honour the memory of an extraordinary woman. Tammy was the morning anchor on News1130, and was a passionate supporter of women's causes and WOW. Her sudden loss to pancreatic cancer in 2016 was a tragic blow to all who knew her, especially her 7-year-old son as she was a single mom. The Awards will allow Tammy's name to live on in a way that was meaningful to her, and also provide ongoing financial support to the Trust that was established for her son to secure his future.

Announcing our 2017 Award Finalists

The selection committee has chosen the following extraordinary women as our finalists for the 7 Woman Of Worth Awards. All finalists will be recognized at the event, and the 7 recipients will be announced during the award ceremony. Everyone is a winner for being nominated, and every woman is a Woman Of Worth.

Written by Christine Awram, WOW Founder

I am a Woman of Worth!

My worthiness is inherent, infinite and persevering -
it is my natural state

My value is a reflection of who I AM -
and I am magnificent

And ... who I am always makes a difference -
because I MATTER

I am successful -
because I come from my true power which lies within

I am an empowered leader -
I impact others from quiet acts of kindness to leading a nation

I am abundant -
I manifest success from the core of my values and vision

I cherish my relationships -
they are part of what makes me strong

I am a Human BEing -
as my BEing is of far more significance than my DOing

I bring beauty, joy and light into the world -

At times I despair and I weep,
when I feel the pain of a world that has momentarily gone mad

Yet even when I tremble through a dark night of the soul,
I renew my faith and my courage in a single heartbeat -
because my spirit is indomitable

I FEEL and I CARE and I am passionately ALIVE -
with a heart as open as the universe
