     HAMMOND – Prepare for a fun-filled evening ‘Under the Big Top.’  Tickets are on sale now for Chefs Evening 2007, Southeastern Louisiana University’s popular “dinner party for a good cause,” featuring treats and libations from area restaurants, bars, grills and wholesalers.

     The annual event, sponsored by the Southeastern Development Foundation, is scheduled for Sunday, March 25, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the University Center. The Southeastern Development Foundation encourages everyone to join us and sample the fabulous flavors of our local establishments,” said Chefs Evening coordinator Lynn Harris Horgan. “The theme for this year’s event is ‘Under the Big Top.’ We’re going to transform the University Center into a circus pavilion of local restaurants, caterers, beverage providers and a silent auction with gifts for all price ranges."
