HAMMOND – The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association – through
a sponsorship with George Ibert Jewelry and Gifts of Hammond -- will present a new
fund raising event for the organization on Thursday, June 11.
“Champagne, Chocolate and Diamonds promises to be a special event with a new twist,” explained Kathy Pittman, director of the Alumni Association. “Patrons can indulgence themselves on champagne and a wide variety of chocolate delights, including Godiva chocolates.”
Highlight of the event will be presentation of a certified one carat, high quality colorless diamond to a single patron, compliments of Ibert’s. Winner need not be present to win.
The event is limited to 150 patrons at a cost of $100 per couple. Tickets can be purchased at Ibert’s Jewelry and Gifts, 1665 SW Railroad Ave.; K-Team Printing, 2107 W. Thomas St., at the Southeastern Alumni Center, 500 W. University Ave.; or online through the the association, www.southeastern.edu/alumni.
“We’ve heard from our male friends who feel slightly slighted they can’t participate in our annual FeLions Champagne Bingo, so we’ve decided to open this event to couples,: Pittman said.
Models will be wearing clothes from Dillards and jewelry from collections such as Mastoloni Pearls, LeVian chocolate diamonds, and Vahan sterling. Modeling will be former Miss Southeastern Rene Picou, current Miss Southeastern Emily Randon, and alumnae Katie Morse and Katie Campbell Krause.
Music will be provided by the Reg Sanders Trio. Pittman also expressed gratitude to K-Team Printing and Marketing, Dillards, the Crescent Bar and Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
