Son of a Saint raised $7,500 in support of the organization’s many programming events and resources for its young mentees at its “Dine Around.”

CeCe and Trevor Colhoun generously hosted the event at their Uptown home. A trio of musicians, performing on an upright bass, xylophone and drum set, entertained the group of 30 guests as they mingled inside the home and outdoors by the pool.

Sponsored by Link Stryjewski Foundation, chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski prepared a delightful menu of hors d’oeuvres and dinner, featuring bright seafood dishes served over ice in boats and a cheese and charcuterie table. A dessert table offered pecan and apple tarts and pocket pies.

Son of a Saint Founder Bivian “Sonny” Lee III was in attendance.

Son of a Saint exists to enhance the lives of fatherless boys through mentorship, emotional support, development of life skills, exposure to constructive experiences and formation of positive, lasting peer-to-peer relationships.
