Jahri Evans and some of his fellow Saints were the host team for the fourth annual Hope for the Holidays gala, honoring American heroes. Held at the Ritz-Carlton New Orleans, other hosts included actress and recording artist Christina Milian, actress Shantel VanSanten and retired NBA star John Salley, along with IrvingMorris Foundation. The nonprofit Hope for the Holidays is devoted to rebuilding homes and lives. Evans was honored for his efforts and contributions, and there were many extraordinary moments, including the gift of a new, mortgage-free home to Army veteran Nathan Young.
