On Thursday, July 21 from 5:30 until 9 p.m. at No. 5 Faber, Passion to Forgive will host a fundraiser and cocktail hour to support the Myra Singleton-Thompson Scholarship for teenage mothers.
The scholarship was created in honor of Myra Singleton-Thompson after she lost her life in the Emanuel tragedy in Charleston, SC. It provides support to teen moms continuing their collegiate education or trade.
Thanks to support from Duvall Catering, Blackbaud, Mickey Bakst, Senator Marlon Kimpson, Savage Law Firm, No. 5 Faber, and countless individuals in the community, the event on July 21 will have heavy hors d’oeuvres, music, raffle items, wine and beer.
“My mother’s passion for education and helping others is the driving force behind Passion to Forgive. Her determination to succeed and be active in the community is the model we would like to continue to follow,” says Kevin Singleton, Myra’s son and founder of Passion to Forgive.
Myra was a teacher and counselor. She received two master’s degrees and a license to ministry. She became a mother before reaching 20 years of age and lived a lifetime achieving goals and positively impacting communities.
In 2013 WISTV reported “Six thousand girls in our state under the age of 20 become mothers every single year.”
Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.passiontoforgive.eventbrite.com and donations to the organization can be made directly through www.passiontoforgive.org.
