ULM’s Fourth Annual Wine Over Water April 16

It is time yet again to eat, drink and be merry...and take in a great view while we’re at it.

The University of Louisiana at Monroe invites everyone to attend its fourth annual signature event Wine Over Water Thursday, April 16, from 7 – 10 p.m.

Guests may experience the tradition by strolling across the historic ULM Bridge spanning the scenic bayou beside the library while sampling wine and hors d’oeuvres from various local restaurants.

Proceeds benefit The Spirit of the Warhawk Scholarship.

As a prelude, the Patron Party will be hosted at 5:30 p.m. in the ULM Conference Center, on the seventh floor of the library, overlooking the main event. Patron attendees will enjoy exclusive specialties, including a complimentary cocktail hour and party barge cruises.

On the bridge, visitors will be served delectable food samples from restaurants like:

Glazer’s will again bring new and innovative wines, featuring varieties from California, Oregon, Washington state, Italy, France, and Chile. Attendees may also enjoy beverages provided by Marsala Beverage.

Dr. Zarr’s Amazing Funk Monster will provide live entertainment while guests cruise the beautiful Bayou DeSiard on party barges, compliments of Letsinger Marine. Photography for the evening is provided by Patty Stewart Photography.

Wine Over Water has been recognized as an exemplary alumni event in the country by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, in addition to being recognized by Southern Living magazine.

The attire at Wine Over Water is dressy casual (no denim or shorts please); tickets can be purchased at the ULM Alumni Center for $50 per person. Wine Over Water commemorative wine glasses may be purchased at the event for $10 extra.
