Talk host Cristina Saralegui, NAACP Florida President Adora Obi Nweze and partners Tim Nardi and Charles Million were honored Thursday night at the Aqua Foundation for Women's Aqua Ally Awards.

“It’s vital that we appreciate and show our appreciation to those who make our community a better place to live and help the movement move forward,” said Robin Schwartz, executive director of Aqua Foundation for Women, which gives scholarships to young women and grants to local lesbian-oriented organizations.

Aqua Foundation dates back to 1999, when a group of South Florida lesbians began fundraising for women’s health issues with an event called Sweet Charity. The next year, Sweet Charity morphed into Aqua Girl, a weekend fundraising event now held annually in May. Through the years, Aqua Foundation has raised more than $400,000 for local grants and scholarships to young women.
