ULM Sparkles and Shines for Envision ULM 2005 With Diamond Giveaway

Envision ULM 2005 offers attendees a chance at a three-quarter carat diamond, just for attending the event. During the University of Louisiana at Monroe's second annual Envision event on Thursday, September 8 at 6 p.m., each person who attends will be given a small numbered bag with a single stone in it. All stones will be a cubic zirconia, except for one, which will be a .75-carat round-cut GIA certified solitaire diamond with documentation. During the evening, the winning number will be announced. Everyone who purchases a ticket and attends the event is eligible to win.

Envision ULM 2005, a celebration of all things ULM, will be at the Monroe Civic Center beginning at 6 p.m. with a reception and dinner at 6:30.

"Everyone is encouraged to purchase their tickets soon; they are going fast. Last year the event sold out and this year we expect another sell-out crowd," said Sue Edmunds, Assistant Vice President for External Affairs at ULM.

Tickets are $30 per person and $240 per table of 8 (includes a meal and wine). Seating is limited to 900 people. Dress is cocktail attire.

Tickets are on sale now. Contact the office of University Relations for ticket information at (318) 342-5440.

This community event is the official kick-off of the 75th anniversary celebration of the university, which will occur in 2006. The program features several speakers including ULM President Dr. James E. Cofer, Sr., Athletic Director Bobby Staub, President of the ULM Alumni Association Don Weems, as well as students and alumni.

Once again this year, the Hall of Distinction award will be presented to an alumnus, friend or supporter of the university. The Golden Arrow Award and the Slim Scogin Award recipients will also be recognized. Sponsors of the event include the ULM Foundation, the Monroe Chamber of Commerce and the West Monroe-West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce.

All ULM supporters, family and friends are welcome.
