Wine Tasting Fundraiser Nov. 1


The group Friends of Sims Library (FoSL) is hosting its sixth annual "Wine with Friends," a fundraiser for Southeastern's Linus A. Sims Memorial Library, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1.

Held at the library, the popular event will feature six wines paired with samplings of food from local restaurants, live music, and a silent auction. Wines will be introduced by Todd Delaune of The Red, White & Brew.

FoSL is an organization that supports the activities and collections of the library. Funds generated by FoSL are used to supplement the library's annual budget, purchase needed equipment and resources, and provide programs, lectures, author readings and signings, and other special events. All funds raised go directly to the library, thanks to donations from area individuals and businesses.

Tickets are $35 each. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the tasting beginning at 7 p.m. Space is limited, so early reservations are requested. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

Patrons can reserve seats by credit card online at or via check payable to Southeastern Foundation, SLU 10896, Hammond, LA 70402. For more information about the wine tasting or the Friends of Sims Library, contact Janie Branham at 985-549-2186 or
