On Tuesday afternoon, New Orleans Saints and Pelicans owner Gayle Benson was awarded The Times-Picayune Loving Cup for 2021. The award has been presented to New Orleanians who demonstrate exceptional philanthropic efforts in the community since 1901.

Mrs. Benson said that she was “stunned and humbled” when she learned that she would be receiving the award. Just some of recipients of Mrs. Benson’s generosity include the New Orleans Museum of Art, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, the Greater New Orleans Foundation and Tulane University.
