Jessie Bates hosted Single Moms Initiative before Bengals win over Browns

Jessie Bates held her 3rd Annual Single Mother’s Initiative over the weekend. He collaborated with Bigger Than Sneakers, Inc. to treat single mothers and their children to a few days full of festivities.

“I am so excited for this year’s event,” Bates said prior to the event. “Every year we’ve been able to make an impact, and this year we have some extra events planned to make it even bigger. That’s something that’s incredibly important to me.”

Helping single parents is a cause that Bates is passionate about. He grew up in a single mother household with his older sister, younger brother and step-siblings in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He saw the sacrifices his mother, Theresa, made, such as working two jobs, to support her family.

His single mother’s initiative is Bates’ way of giving back to those experiencing similar situations to him.

Bates kicked off the event last weekend with a Christmas shopping spree for the kids.

The weekend’s events started on Friday evening with a trip to the cinema for the children, while the mothers had dinner together. Saturday offered fresh haircuts and fun at TopGolf. ‘Who Dey’, the mascot of the Bengals, also joined them.

On Sunday, the group attended the Bengals versus Browns game in a private suite, had a visit from the Ben-Gal cheerleaders at the game and allowed post-game access to meet Bates after the game.

They saw the Bengals secure their fifth straight win and Bates picked up a crucial interception in the 4th quarter. Bates received a game ball for his performance.

Together with the initiative’s funds, Bates provides limousine transportation for children and mothers around the city.

The Bengals battle Tom Brady and the Buccaneers at 4:25 p.m. ET this Sunday. Fans can watch on CBS via fuboTV – start your free trial here.
