This event will also celebrate and recognize more than five years of the “Ms. Single Mom – Yes, You Can!” book ( because the book’s focus is education, encouragement and empowerment – a movement that serves as a strong reminder to all single mothers that “Yes, You Can!” even when the odds say No, You Can’t.Butler and Sullivan understand the importance of giving back to the community and look for opportunities to support underserved groups.
