HAMMOND – The President’s Toast, an event that launches Southeastern Louisiana University’s
annual fund raising event Chefs Evening, this year will again be sponsored by Regions
The bank served as the premier sponsor of last year’s President’s Toast, which precedes Chefs Evening, scheduled this year for Sunday, March 12. The toast will be held at the President’s Residence from 4 to 5 p.m. and will feature food and wine pairings selected by the award-winning chef Joshua Garic of Jacmel Inn Restaurant of Hammond.
Chefs Evening follows from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the university’s Student Union Grand Ballroom. Now in its third decade, Chefs Evening is the Southeastern Foundation’s signature fundraiser, providing support for university scholarships and academic programs. The event features wine tastings and unique culinary offerings developed by some of the area’s finest restaurants and distributors.
“Regions Bank is proud to lend its support to Southeastern’s Chefs Evening by again sponsoring the President’s Toast,” said Regions Vice Presideet for Business Banking Chad Cornett. “Southeastern is an integral part of our region, and Regions Bank strongly supports the university in its mission.
Vice President and Relationship Manager Michael Faherty added, “Regions Bank sees Southeastern as a leader in helping to promote the economic development of our area. We believe a strong partnership with the univesity further strengthens that development.”
