MONROE, LA – The 16th Annual Wine Over Water hosted by the University of Louisiana Monroe Alumni Association is set for 7:00-10:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 13. Established as a signature event at ULM, Wine Over Water will be on the ULM bridge over tranquil Bayou Desiard on Northeast Drive. 

“Wine Over Water is a one-of-a-kind experience that you cannot miss,” said ULM Director of Alumni Affairs Sarah Siereveld. “While the ambience is unique, knowing that your attendance is contributing to scholarships and thus changing someone's life is incredibly humbling. One of the easiest ways to get involved is to attend an event, and I hope to see you there,” she added.  

Tickets are $60, and the evening’s attire is dressy casual. Tickets are available online at ulm.edu/wine, by calling (318) 342-5420, or at the Laird Weems Center located at 4400 Bon Aire Drive. Office hours are 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Thursday, and 7:30-11:30 a.m. Friday. To learn more about the ULM Alumni Association, visit ulm.edu/alumni. 

Guests can enjoy strolling across the ULM bridge while sampling hors d’oeuvres from these local restaurants: Amaze’n Treats & Eats, Aramark, Avocado’s, Bake318, Big MC’s BBQ, Cali Café, Casa Real, Catfish Cabin, CC’s Coffee House, Chicken Salad Chick, Coca-Cola, Delta Biscuit Co., Fieldhouse Bar & Grill, Firehouse Subs, Jac’s Craft Smokehouse, Kitchen Cooking, Miro’s, Nash in a Dash, Papi Loco Taco Bar, Planter’s On the River, Raising Cane’s, Roll Play, Sweet Hands Bakery, The Cookout, The Fat Pelican, Thurman’s Food Factory, and Waterfront Grill.  

Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits will provide wines and Marsala Beverage will provide beer.  

A commemorative wine glass, sunset boat rides on the bayou with B&L Marine, and entertainment featuring Mr. Taylormade and the Taylormade Band will make it a night to remember. 

The Cork Pull is back by popular demand. With more than 50 bottles of wine up for grabs, guests can purchase a cork for $25 and take home a mystery bottle of wine. No wines are valued at less than $25, but many are worth more. The Cork Pull is another way to support the ULM Alumni Association. 

The Patron Party will be held prior to Wine Over Water from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at Bayou Pointe Event Center. Patron Party tickets include complimentary hors d’oeuvres, event wine glasses, live entertainment, and admission to the Wine Over Water Bridge Party. These exclusive tickets are available through sponsorship packages or purchased for $125 each. 

Wine Over Water benefits ULM scholarships, alumni chapters, and the work of the ULM Alumni Association in its mission to support ULM in “changing lives.” The Alumni Association connects, engages, and fosters relationships with current and future alumni to one another, and the university, through communications, events, and programs.  

The event also supports the Spirit of the Warhawk Endowed Scholarship, which helps local students pursue their undergraduate degrees at ULM. Ticket purchases ensure students in Northeast Louisiana can continue to strive for academic excellence. $11,500 in scholarships were awarded in 2022-23.
