Dinner en Bleu
This Fall, Dillard University will continue to celebrate its 150th Founding Anniversary with Dinner En Bleu. A chic take on the Parisian cult classic, Diner En Blanc, Dinner En Bleu will be a contemporary dinner featuring a local guest vocalist. The elegant sit-down will commemorate the beginning of Dillard’s Founders Day Weekend for 150 guests at the price of $150/per person. It will be held on Friday, October 18, 2019, at Hotel Peter & Paul, located in the New Orleans’ Marigny.

The dining experience will commence at 6:30 p.m. and guests are encouraged to wear blue cocktail attire. Previously, the University celebrated its 150th Founding Anniversary with a gala featuring Grammy-award winning artist, Patti LaBelle. Dillard University raised a record of $1.1 million from the gala for its Student Assistance for Financial Emergencies (SAFE) Fund.

The Dinner En Bleu proceeds will benefit Dillard University's Ray Charles Program in African-American Material Culture. The program was established in 2004 by music icon Ray Charles. With the funds, the program will create an archival system of New Orleans’ food culture and history. This endeavor will be attained with curriculum development in the following areas: Food Studies Minor, Restaurant & Catering Management Continuing Education courses and community building lessons with renowned chefs. The Ray Charles Program will also host records of menus and recipes that date back to 17th-century slavery in New Orleans.

Please join Dillard University for a special evening at one of New Orleans’ most en vogue venues to salute its tradition of premier education with a laissez le bon temps rouler flair.
