The ULM Alumni Association and the Ouachita Parish Alumni Chapter are hosting Wine Over Water on the ULM campus bridge, April 25 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The event supports scholarship funds as proceeds from the night benefit the Spirit of the Warhawk Endowed Scholarship.
The Spirit of the Warhawk Endowed Scholarship supports local students pursuing their undergraduate degree at ULM. A ticket purchase ensures students of northeast Louisiana can continue to strive for academic excellence and ease the financial burden. Numerous scholarships have been awarded since the event’s inception.
Food from over 25 local restaurants will be featured at the event. Wine will be provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, and beer provided by Marsala Beverage. Each attendee will receive a commemorative wine glass, sunset boat rides on the bayou with B&L Marine and entertainment featuring Flashback 5. Tickets are $60. The evening’s attire is dressy casual.
The Tonore’s Cork Pull is back by popular demand. With over 50 bottles of wine up for grabs, you can purchase a cork for $25 and take home a mystery bottle. No bottles are valued at less than $25, but many are worth more.
