The New Orleans Saints…win or lose…have given this community, this state more thrills than any other entity. This team pulls us together in BAD times and helps us create so many GOOD times. The Saints are the players and the coaches, but at its core is the man who believed in the team when he bought it.
Tom Benson has taken a team that didn’t know what winning was and turned it into a Super Bowl champion. He did it methodically by hiring the right people…and never losing sight of the goal. And, now he’s established a new goal for his NBA team—the New Orleans Pelicans. One can only think…this is how he lived his life.
Tom Benson is a self-made man, who must have had dreams as a child growing up in New Orleans…dreams as a young man building his future and goals of being a success. He has accomplished them all.
And, now, he and his wife, Gayle, have become a charitable force in New Orleans. Together as a team they continue to touch the lives of so many, whether it’s through their donations to education, healthcare, the arts or their church.
Our community would simply not be the same without them.
