Friends of Sims Library will host its seventh annual “Wine with Friends,” a fundraiser for Southeastern Louisiana University’s Linus A. Sims Memorial Library, at 7 p.m. Friday at the library.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. All funds raised go directly to the library.

The event will feature six wines introduced by Todd Delaune, of The Red, White and Brew in Hammond, paired with samplings of food, live music, a silent auction and door prizes, Library Director Eric Johnson said.

Tickets are $35 each and will not be sold at the door. Space is limited, so reservations are requested.

Order tickets at or via check payable to Southeastern Foundation, SLU 10896, Hammond, LA 70402.
