A portion of the proceeds from the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival also benefits Son of A Saint, a 501(c)3 non-profit which 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.”
