A group of single mothers from across the Ozarks were celebrated with a special Valentine’s banquet Saturday night at the Tower Club.
The 2020 SingleMomzRock Banquet provided single mothers with a catered meal, entertainment from singer Josh Tibbs, and door prizes.
The event featured keynote speaker Kelsey Baldwin, a single mother who founded her own design & organization company, Paper + Oats. She spoke to the women about overcoming the challenges of being a single mother.
Baldwin told OI she was honored to come speak to the event because she was one an attendee like the women in attendance.
“About seven years ago, I was pregnant and single and facing a whole new reality,” Baldwin told OI. “It was cool to be able to come to a place where other women were also facing the same challenges. So to come back and be able to share my story with them, it’s kind of crazy.”
SingleMomzRock was founded by Janelle Reed and has since joined with Victory Mission to expand its outreach capabilities.
