NEW ORLEANS - The Son of the Saint Foundation's mission is to enhance the lives of young males without dads through mentorship, education, sports and mental health.

The foundation is inspired by a former Saints player Bivian Lee Jr. who passed away at 36 and left behind a family of three

Now Sonny Lee, his son, is giving back.

Their second annual gala, hosted by Steve Gleason, is coming up Saturday.

Lee and Taylor Weeks, a participant in the program for the past two years, were in the studio with more information. 

The gala is from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. at the Windsor Court Hotel.

Funds from the gala will go towards a summer trip for the kids to the Smoky Mountains.

If you'd like more information you can call 655-8416 or go to http://www.sonofasaint.org/.
