Son of a Saint salutes "Spotlight Sponsors," partners that go above and beyond in support of our mission.

Link Stryjewski Foundation
Creating opportunities and empowering young people in our city — those goals are at the heart of both Son of a Saint and the Link Stryjewski Foundation (LSF). LSF’s passion, commitment and New Orleans love equal our own. That’s why we make such natural partners.
LSF has been a valued, generous partner to Son of a Saint for several years. Our relationship started in 2017 when LSF graciously invited us to their Bal Masque event, a festive annual fundraiser. The next year, Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski became official Son of a Saint Ambassadors, and hosted the Costa Rican Benefit Dinner in May 2018 to support our international travel program.
In the years since, LSF has supported us with their time, in-kind donations, philanthropic contributions, and many delicious meals.
This year, LSF truly went above and beyond to not only expand, but also solidify their partnership with our organization. In February 2022, LSF donated $100,000 to help build the Link Stryjewski Foundation Dining Room in our new headquarters, The Ochsner Health Son of a Saint Bivian Lee Jr. Center.
For the young men in our program, the dining room will be a place to gather for nutrition education, culinary classes, chef demonstrations — and serve as a place to build connections over freshly prepared meals.
“We are pleased to be able to make this ongoing commitment to Son of a Saint,” said LSF founder Chef Donald Link. “The young men that come out of this program are the future of our city.”
“Our partnership with Son of a Saint is a natural evolution of our investment in the New Orleans community and its improvement,” said LSF co-founder Chef Stephen Stryjewski. “We are honored to be a part of the solution.”
Son of a Saint continues to be inspired and honored by LSF’s dedication and investment in our mission. . We are grateful for all that has come to fruition through this impactful partnership thus far, and also excited for what’s yet to come. To learn more about Link Stryjewski Foundation, please visit
