Son of a Saint to Host Annual Gala

On Thursday, December 9th, 2021, the Saint to Host Annual Gala will take place at The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans. Gala guests will then enjoy musical entertainment, a three-course dinner with open bar, as well as a live auction. Four Son of a Saint mentees will assist gala chair Bill Hines as special guest emcees for the evening. As Son of a Saint continues its crucial work of enhancing the lives of nearly 200 fatherless young men throughout the New Orleans area — its highest mentee enrollment to date — all proceeds generated from the event will directly support the organization’s core mission and its future growth.

This is a wonderful way for us to safely return and continue hosting our most-coveted signature event back at the Ritz-Carlton, and we couldn’t be prouder to continue this partnership and to welcome all the newfound support from those who enthusiastically believe in our mission. 2020 and 2021 brought tremendous growth for us. We’ve been fortunate to continue our momentum and share successes alongside our dedicated partners. Each year, this gala is our greatest fundraising event, offering the opportunity to acknowledge our boys and the talented individuals and mentors who collectively fuel this organization. We would simply not exist without their support.     ~ Son of a Saint Founder and CEO Bivian “Sonny” Lee III
