Wine Over Water

The threat of a little inclement weather couldn’t dampen spirits at the University of Louisiana-Monroe, when it hosted its annual Wine Over Water fundraiser. While the annual Alumni Association event is usually held on the bridge across Bayou Desiard, this year’s event moved indoors, to Fant-Ewing Coliseum.
Attendees enjoyed wines from area vendors and hors d’oeuvres while taking in the tunes of the Memphis-based Funk de Ville. Prior to the main event, patron-level sponsors also enjoyed panoramic views as they hobnobbed at a private party in the ULM Conference Center on the 7th floor.

Proceeds from the event each year go to benefit the ULM “Spirit of the Warhawk” scholarship, a general scholarship awarded annually by the ULM Scholarship Committee. Now in its 9th year, Wine Over Water has grown into a ULM tradition and is one of the university’s most visible community events.
