Chef Nina Compton Hosts Christmas Dinner for Son of A Saint Mentees
NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Renowned local chef Nina Compton will serve a special holiday feast for dozens of mentees of Son of A Saint, the nonprofit providing support to young men who have lost their fathers to violence or incarceration. The mentors who support these boys in their journey to become positive contributors within the community will also be in attendance.
“The holidays are filled with family, happiness and joy,” says Chef Nina Compton. “I wanted to spread some cheer through my cooking for the boys of Son of A Saint, as it is important to bring them together like a family — because they are.”
From mentorship and mental health services to tuition assistance and career development programming, Son of a Saint supports mentees 24/7 in every aspect of their lives. This dinner is a reflection of that mission during the holiday season, which can be emotionally taxing for those who have lost loved ones.
WHEN: Monday, Dec. 9 6:00 p.m. — 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: Felicity Church 1220 Felicity St., New Orleans, LA 70130
