The Singletons will host the 2nd annual Swing into Spring Social on Saturday, February 22, bringing together current and former MLB players, local businesses and supporters to raise funds for The Singeltons’ H.U.B. Project, an initiative to expand its reach with the opening of the organization’s first family community center in 2020.
The Singletons are an Arizona nonprofit founded by Jody Farley that serves the needs of single-parent families battling cancer. The organization has provided monthly family style meals, bare necessities, and financial support to 1,000 families including more than 2,700 since 2006. The Singletons’ H.U.B. will provide a safe place for families to connect with volunteers, counselors, and other members of the community for support and resources. The H.U.B. will serve as the operational venue for all Singletons programs including educational classes in health and nutrition, small scale fundraisers and The Singletons Kitchen program which distributed over 2,352 meals by 250 volunteers last year.
Sponsored by Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Nevada Donor Network, OHSO Brewing Co. and the MLB Players Trust, the Swing into Spring Social will feature culinary tasting stations provided by Culinary Dropout and Blanco Tacos & Tequila, Sicilian Butcher and Sicilian Baker, artesian fry company Frite Street Fries and Chef Jay Perry.
