THIBODAUX – The Nicholls State University Foundation will host the 11th annual Women’s Night Out benefit on Thursday, May 6, at Cypress Columns in Gray, La. All proceeds will benefit women’s athletics at Nicholls.
Sponsored by Entergy, the Tim Emerson Team at Smith Barney, Peter Knoop of Morgan Keegan, AIG, Coca-Cola and the Nicholls Foundation, the event includes a four-course dinner, live and silent auctions and a night of entertainment and fun – including free, after-party limousine service.
Attire for the evening is dressy-casual.
“Women’s Night Out is traditionally one of Nicholls’ most enjoyable and most successful benefits,” Dr. David Boudreaux, vice president for institutional advancement, said. “We have raised approximately $50,000 per year for the past three years, and we hope to continue that trend. Our Lady Colonels truly deserve all the support they can get. This year, we will use the majority of the proceeds to send as many of these fine student athletes as possible to summer school, to help them graduate on time.”
The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres and champagne, followed by dinner at 7:15.
Tickets are $100 per person. To make reservations, call the foundation at (985) 448-4005 or (985) 448-4134.
