2nd Annual SIP UNLIMITED: A Tribute to Kuan Lim

August 26, 2018

MARGARITAVILLE AND LOCAL RESTAURANT INDUSTRY
COME TOGETHER FOR 2nd ANNUAL SIP, UNLIMITED:
A TRIBUTE TO KUAN LIM

Sunday, August 26, 2018, from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m., Margaritaville Resort Casino will host the 2nd Annual SIP, UNLIMITED: A Tribute to Kuan Lim, a wine, food and entertainment experience showcasing Northwest Louisiana’s favorite restaurants and wines from around the globe. Guests will visit a vast array of food and wine vendors located throughout the property, offering delicious food and wine tastings. A silent auction featuring items contributed by participating vendors, local businesses and individuals will be held throughout the event.

SIP, UNLIMITED began in 2017 to celebrate and raise funds for local restaurant legend Kuan Lim, Owner of Lucky Palace, to assist with prosthetics and medical bills incurred during his battle with small cell carcinoma. More than 400 people attended the event, which generated over $57,000 in gross revenue. This year, proceeds will honor two deserving service industry recipients chosen by Lim, Margaritaville SVP and GM Barry Regula, and other members of the restaurant and hospitality community – the family of Lucky Palace’s own Holly Lim, whose daughter Tiffany Pippenger passed away in late 2017 from a critical illness, leaving behind a young daughter; and the family of Southern Glazer’s Perry “Trey” McArdle Woods, who lost his life in May 2018 after a tragic accident and is survived by his wife and two young daughters.

Barry Regula is pleased to continue helping the local hospitality industry’s own. “We have such a robust and dedicated service community in our area, and every business and individual that contributes to SIP whole-heartedly embraces this opportunity to give back. Our very finest culinary professionals and sommeliers are collaborating on a gastronomic adventure inspired by Lim himself. Margaritaville and our crew members were overwhelmed by the generosity of our community last year – the silent auction alone raised over $20,000 in gross revenue. We look forward to generating even more funds this year to assist the Pippenger and Woods families.”
