         The Link Stryjewski Foundation was created in 2015 by Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski to address the persistent cycle of violence and poverty, as well as the lack of quality education and job training opportunities available to young people in New Orleans. Foundation reps said the Link Stryjewski Foundation provides support to organizations that directly work to end the cycle of violence and poverty that affect the lives of children. Their mission, they said, is to help nourish and educate the youth of New Orleans, allowing them to realize their potential and become active positive members of our community. Kingsley House and YEP (Youth Empowerment Project) were the first two organizations to be supported by the Link Stryjewski Foundation.


         Seating is limited for the event, and reservations are required by calling (504) 525-8676.

         Tujague’s is located at 823 Decatur St. in New Orleans’ French Quarter.
