Dinner at Native Bay to Benefit UW-Eau Claire Latin American Studies Program

RELEASED: April 11, 2008

LAS dinner invitationEAU CLAIRE — A special five-course dinner to benefit students in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Latin American studies program will be held at 7 p.m. April 30 at Native Bay Restaurant in Chippewa Falls.

For those who can not stay for dinner, hors d'oeuvres are available for $25 plus a cash bar.

The fundraiser, hosted by the LAS program, is part of an effort to endow the Latin American Studies Scholarship Fund, which will award its first scholarship this spring to LAS students since the program originated 35 years ago.

The $100-a-plate dinner, prepared by chef Nathan Berg from Native Bay, will consist of five courses with wine pairing and featured foods from various Latin American countries.

Margaritas and other Caribbean and tropical drinks will be served during the cocktail hours along with hors d'oeuvres with a Latin flair.

"The dinner will be a delicious event people will not want to miss," said program coordinator Eva Santos-Phillips. "It is not only a chance to enjoy a fine meal, but also an opportunity to help endow the scholarship so it can be given to deserving LAS students for years to come."

To make reservations for the event, call Native Bay at 715-726-0434. For more information, contact Santos-Phillips at 715-836-4215 or by e-mail at santosel@uwec.edu.
