Jingle Jangle Event for Single Mothers Scheduled

Hear from Pam Kanaly and Wanda Pratt, mother of OKC Thunder’s Kevin Durant

If ever there is a season that demands more than 100% of a person’s fortitude and stamina, it’s those six weeks between mid-November and the end of the year. What’s a single mom to do? Attend Jingle Jangle!

Jingle Jangle is a Friday night of fun and encouragement for single moms and their children.

This event is geared toward women raising children alone. Attendees range from divorced, never married, widowed, separated from spouse, grandmothers raising grandchildren, etc. Regardless of how long you’ve been a single mother or the age of your children, this special pre-holiday night out is for you!

The event will feature Pam Kanaly and an interview with Wanda Pratt, mother of OKC Thunder’s Kevin Durant. 

Pam Kanaly is an author, national speaker and nominee for Oklahoma Mother of the Year 2010. 

Wanda Pratt is the mother of NBA star Kevin Durant. She gave birth to Kevin before she married Kevin's father Wayne Pratt. This led to Kevin taking his mother's maiden name as his last name. Wayne would eventually leave Wanda, Kevin and Kevin's brother Tony before Kevin's first birthday leaving all the heavy lifting of raising two boys to Wanda.

When Kevin turned 9 Wanda introduced him to Taras Brown, the man who would become Kevin's mentor and train him throughout his youth. With Wanda's discipline at home and Taras' training in the gym Kevin turned into the NBA star we see now. Eventually Wayne would come back into Kevin's life but Wanda always gets the credit for raising Kevin from Kevin himself. When the NBA finals get started don't be surprised if you see Wanda dancing up a storm in OKC which always draws a smile from her son Kevin.

Jingle Jangle is billed as a time for single mothers to connect with other single moms.

This event is free but registration is required. Registration will close after Friday, November 9, 2012.

Childcare is provided for children ages birth through 12 years old. Registration is required by Friday, November 9, 2012. Please feed your children dinner before arriving. Children are not permitted in the auditorium during the event in order to allow moms to have a quiet break.
