The three-time WNBA Champions Phoenix Mercury donated 37 game tickets to Singleton Moms and their families where the team named ESPN reporter Holly Rowe the team’s 2016 BBVA Compass Bright Futures Woman of Inspiration. Rowe was honored as “a pioneer who has risen to the top of a historically male- dominated field. Most inspiring of all, she has not allowed her current battle with cancer to keep her from doing the job she loves with her trademark energy, enthusiasm and smile. Holly is an inspiration and we feel fortunate to be able to honor her this year” stated Mercury Vice President of Operations Vince Kozar.
Rowe, a single mother and a brave cancer warrior met with some of the Singleton families in a pre-game meet and greet at half court where she asked for advice, suggestions and gave encouraging hugs and prayers for her fellow “sisters.” The kids were then treated to fun games and the opportunity to cheer on the Mercury players as they entered the court.
It was a great night and a fun outing for moms and their families to celebrate women of inspiration – thank you to the Phoenix Mercury for letting us all recognize the wonderful women of inspiration in our lives and in our community.
