If you like great food paired with great wine, you’ll want to make plans to attend a Night of Red and White at UL Lafayette’s Alumni Center on April 12 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Proceeds from the event benefit the UL Lafayette Hospitality program and the Acadiana Chapter of the Louisiana Restaurant Association.

Participants will enjoy a tasting of perfectly selected wines grouped with specialty dishes prepared by Acadiana’s finest restaurants with the help of senior hospitality students studying at UL Lafayette.

“ This event gives our students valuable interaction with professional chefs in our area,” said Becky Gaspard, an Hospitality Management instructor. “It gives our students a mentor in the industry.”

Some of the participating restaurants include Nash’s, Zea’s, Charley G’s, the Hilton Hotel, Blue Dog and Bella Figura. Republic Beverage will provide the wine offerings.

An impromptu fashion show will also entertain guests as well as a silent auction.

Tickets are $50. For more information, call 482-6132.
