Last Friday, I joined over 500 other guests decked out in our best seersucker outfits to attend the 11th annual Ogden Museum’s Sippin’ in Seersucker event. Kicking off the summer social season, the event was held on the first and second floors of Canal Place with cocktails and food from over 15 local venues. Entertainment was provided by the beautiful vocals of Robin Barnes and the upbeat jazz sounds of the New Orleans Swamp Donkeys.
Throughout the night, the sharpest of dressers were chosen to participate in a Seersucker Contest hosted by Charles Divins and judged by Tracee Dundas and L. Kasimu Harris. Select stores offered shopping specials and a photo booth provided by GoGo Photo Booth was on hand to provide some fun photos to commemorate the amazing night! Raffles were also awarded throughout the night for shopping, wine, entertainment and much more.
Mark your calendars for this event next year and start planning your seersucker outfit early. The competition is steep and the seersucker look is definitely a summer must!
If you missed this event, make sure to come out to celebrate the Ogden Museum at “Ogden After Hours” – more information is listed on their website – http://www.ogdenmuseum.org/calendar/index.html
