The Wine Over Water Bridge Party is Thursday, April 5 from 7-9 p.m. on the Northeast Drive Bridge. Proceeds from the bridge party go towards the Spirit of the Warhawk Scholarship.
Tickets for Wine Over Water include food from over 30 local restaurant vendors, boat rides on the bayou, and entertainment from Flashback 5, as well as a commemorative wine glass. As the name implies, wine and beer play a large role in the party. Tonore's Wine Cellar hosts a cork pull in which guests purchase a $25 ticket and receive a wine bottle with the corresponding ticket number priced anywhere from $25-$125.
"This event alone raises around $40,000 every year for scholarships," says Dani Walker, the Associate Director of Alumni Affairs at ULM. All proceeds from the party go to help fund the Spirit of the Warhawk Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to students in Ouachita and surrounding parishes.
Before the bridge party kicks off, there is a Patron Party in the seventh floor of the library, overlooking the bayou below. The Patron Party begins at 6 p.m. and includes hors-d'oeuvres and an event wine glass. Entertainment at the party is provided by the LA Jazz Quartet. Tickets for the Patron Party also include attendance to the bridge party.
