Former Governor Edwin Edwards has lived a long and storied life in the public eye. His escapades in Louisiana government, while controversial, are also fodder for humorous and interesting stories that he will relate at the Iberia Cultural Resources Association's fundraiser. The evening's proceeds will support the production of New Iberia Beneath The Balconies, a free annual event of theatrical and musical performances that takes place in October. "An Evening with Edwin Edwards" will be held at 7 pm at the Sugar Cane Festival Building, 600 Parkview Drive. $35 for general admission; $75 for reserved seating, a 5:30 pm backstage reception, and wine and hors d'oeuvres. To reserve tickets, call (337) 658-9746 or (337) 364-1603. iberiatravel.com.
