The Singletons, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to meeting the needs of single-parent families battling cancer.
When you need help the most, The Singletons are there for you. The mission of the Arizona-based nonprofit is to meet the needs of single-parent families battling cancer, by providing necessary resources and support.
Support comes in the form of meal kits, vital household supplies, utility stipends and gas cards. The nonprofit also provides monthly programming and activities to bring families together for additional connection and support. The Singletons offer strength, hope, resources and community—plus a healthy dose of compassion, to help families discover the “little rainbows” during unsettling times.
“The Singletons have seen a 50 percent increase in new families requesting services in the last year,” Jody Boyd says, founder and executive director of The Singletons. “Support from the community in terms of monetary donations and sponsorships will help our organization continue to care for these parents and children in need and allow us to quickly onboard those who are waiting.”
In February of this year, The Singletons held the third annual Swing Into Spring Casino & Cocktail Social to raise funds and awareness. The fundraising event featured Uptown Big Band, professional casino gaming, multiple celebrity chefs, current and former professional athletes, Grammy-Award-winning musicians and one-of-a-kind art for auction by acclaimed artist, Leila Parnian. Celebrity hair stylist, Elsa, and makeup artist, Mykel Renner provided professional styling as a VIP experience for Singletons moms.
“It is an honor to emcee this event and bring many people together to help support The Singletons,” Chef J Perry, founder of JP Concepts and Culinary Consulting, says. “We haven’t seen any organization in the country who is doing what this organization is doing. We want to support the mission and the families.”
Proceeds from Swing Into Spring help to fund monthly programs and support for current and newly onboarded Singletons families. The Singletons partnered with Enterprise, Scottsdale Maserati and Sunflower Bank as official sponsors of the event.
