(Oklahoma City) Parent Promise is celebrating Happy Childhoods Ever After with its 23rd Annual Melody Lane event at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. The event will be held Saturday, Aug. 24, beginning at 6 p.m. The theme of this year’s event is Masquerade Ball and includes a reception, dinner and live and silent auctions.
The annual fundraiser helps support Parent Promise’s mission to prevent child abuse and neglect by strengthening families through parent education and support. Parent Promise provides three home visitation programs focusing on families with children between 0-12.
“Parent Promise is excited about the opportunities we’ve had to expand our programs to help more families,” said Sherry Fair, executive director. “We truly are celebrating Happy Childhoods Ever After, along with a proven track record of providing programs that are effective in diverting families away from overburdened state social services that are costly in both dollars and impacts on families.”
Auction packages this year include premier sporting events, national and world travel, unique local experiences and much more!
David and Jodi Lewis will serve as the evening’s emcees. Jodi is president of the Board of Directors and is the legislative affairs director for Oklahoma Municipal League. David is the chief operating officer of Stability Growth.

Parent Promise, a 501 (c) 3 organization, was founded in 1988 as the Exchange Club Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse of Oklahoma. The organization later merged with Prevent Child Abuse Oklahoma and changed its name to Parent Promise. The program matches families with trained parent educators who help parents create safe, loving and nurturing home environments in which their children can grow and learn.
