MONROE, La. — (4/15/19) The ULM Alumni Association and the Ouachita Parish Alumni Chapter invite you to attend Wine Over Water on the beautiful ULM campus bridge. This is your opportunity to support scholarship funds as proceeds from the night benefit the Spirit of the Warhawk Endowed Scholarship, which is instrumental in attracting our local scholars to ULM.
The Spirit of the Warhawk Endowed Scholarship supports local students pursuing their undergraduate degree at ULM. Your 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 and our goal is to increase support for our students through Wine Over Water each year.
The Ouachita Parish Alumni Chapter hosts events throughout the year to connect alumni and friends. This event is sure to be an unforgettable night. The celebration will be held on Thursday, April 25th on the Northeast Drive Bridge, and will overlook beautiful Bayou DeSiard. With food from over 25 local restaurants, wine provided by Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, and beer provided by Marsala Beverage, your taste buds will be delighted. You will receive a commemorative wine glass, sunset boat rides on the bayou with B&L Marine and entertainment featuring Flashback 5. You do not want to miss this evening of fun, and tickets are only $60. The evening’s attire is dressy casual – no denim or shorts, please.
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 of wine for you to enjoy. No bottles are valued at less than $25, but many are worth more. Not only do you have the chance to win spectacular wine, you are also supporting ULM.
