      HAMMOND -- “Long ago, in days of yore, there was music, feasting and spirits galore. With a medieval flare, we’ve recreated that feeling, so join us for Southeastern’s 19th annual Chefs Evening.”
      This rhyming invitation to the Southeastern Louisiana University Development Foundation’s annual Chefs Evening might not be world-class poetry, but the event itself is world-class fun for a great cause. One of the university’s most popular events, the annual food festival fund-raiser will take place March 28 at the University Center. 
      The University Center arena will be transformed into a medieval wonderland for Chefs Evening 2004 which will feature dozens of tasty treats and libations from area restaurants, bars and grills and wholesalers. 
      Tickets for Chefs Evening, which supports Southeastern academic programs, are $40. Patrons can also choose from a variety of ticket packages which can include the popular Patron Party, the “Champagne Toast” at the campus residence of President Randy Moffett, and -- a new feature this year -- keys to a “treasure chest” of special prizes.
      Chefs Evening ticket packages and their rewards are
      -- The President’s Medal: $500, eight tickets each for the president’s champagne toast,
Chefs Evening, the Patron Party, eight treasure chest keys, and a reserved table for eight.
      -- Summa Cum Laude: $350, eight tickets for Chefs Evening and a reserved table for eight.
      -- Magna Cum Laude: $150, two tickets each for the president’s champagne toast, Chefs Evening, and the Patron Party, and two treasure chest keys.
      -- Cum Laude:  $75: one ticket each for the president’s champagne toast, Chefs Evening, and the Patrons Party, and one treasure chest key.
