The Link Stryjewski Foundation
raised $150,000 from its inaugural Bal Masque event in January to benefit Kingsley House and the Youth Empowerment Project. Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski created the foundation to address New Orleans' crime, poverty and the lack of education and job opportunities.


Brian Sands
raised more than $30,000 in the past three years for Covenant House New Orleans by running in the Crescent City Classic. Sands, a New Orleans playwright, also raised the most money among runners participating in the race's Run For It initiative in 2016. He raised $9,080 in 2015 and more than $11,000 in 2016.


Jerry Ursin,
former Chief Deputy at the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office, resigned from his post in the wake of a Louisiana Legislative Auditor's report that claimed Ursin and other deputies had been paid for working a private detail while also on the Sheriff's Office clock. The detail company was owned by former Sheriff's Office Col. Roy Austin.
