The third annual Swing Into Spring Casino & Cocktail Social benefitting The Singletons will be held on Feb. 25 at a private estate in Troon North.
The Singletons is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of single-parent families battling cancer. Bobby D., World Champion Fundraiser Auctioneer, will bring his energy and passion to excite and inspire donors at a live auction.
The Roaring ’20s themed fundraising event will feature Uptown Big Band performing music from both the Jazz Age and current hits, 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.
Swing Into Spring attendees will enjoy signature culinary creations, craft cocktails, wine and additional tastings by Jason Santos from Hell’s Kitchen, The Pioche Food Group (James Beard semi-finalist) and other celebrity chefs.
Ticket holders will have the opportunity to win luxury raffle prizes and bid on a variety of items and experiences at a live auction.
Experiences for Platinum VIP ticket holders will include early access, celebrity meet and greets, photos and an exclusive private dinner by Chef J. Perry hosted in the guest’s home.
Special performances and support by Steven Cade and other Grammy Award nominees will take place throughout the evening. Celebrity hair stylist Elsa and makeup artist Mykel Renner will be in attendance to provide 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,” said Chef J. Perry, founder of JP Concepts and Culinary Consulting. “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 will help fund monthly programs and support for current and newly onboarded Singletons families. These programs provide 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 have seen a 50% increase in new families requesting services in the last year,” said Jody Boyd, 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.”
The Singletons is proud to partner with Enterprise, Scottsdale Maserati and Sunflower Bank as official sponsors. The nonprofit is also appreciative of the support of Careers through Culinary Arts Program.
