The MoAD Vanguard Presents: Seersucker and Luxe

A Day Party With A Purpose

By LeRon L. Barton


San Francisco is a city known for its ideas, culture, beautiful landscapes, and good times.Whether it is dancing all night in SOMA, celebrating Pride, or having Sunday Fun day at Dolores Park, few cities rival SF’s get down, and that is why I am looking forward to “Seersucker and Luxe,” the 8th annual fundraiser hosted by the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD)’s Vanguard.

The MoAD Vanguard is a membership group of young and young spirited professionals committed to supporting the Museum of the African Diaspora through events that build membership and promote contributions to the museum. Seersucker and Luxe will be held on Saturday, May 21st from 3-7pm at Novela Bar, a beautiful and chic lounge located in SF’s SOMA. I have always liked Novela because of their extensive alcohol selection and hip décor. A hosted bar will be providing seductive drinks; Hil’s Cooking will be providing delicious hors d’oeuvres; and DJ Just-In will be spinning the latest.

The excitement doesn’t end there. The MoAD Vanguard has received a vast amount of support from sponsors such as The Law Offices of Ayanna Jenkins-Toney, Blue Angel Vodka, The Bosco and NorCal Players Charities. They have also received warm community support from some of the Bay Area’s most elite organizations including, 100 Black Men of The Bay Area,BPN (Black Professionals Network) Bay Area, BoldForce (Powered by SalesForce), and Young,Black and In San Francisco, just to name a few.

Great networking opportunities, open bar, tasty food, and dope music is a great reason to checkout “Seersucker and Luxe,” but if you are like me, your number one reason to attend the party is for the fashion and trendy, vintage looks. I love fashion and I am excited about the Spring and Summer seersucker theme. Young professionals, trendsetters, and people that set the curve will be present, dressed in styles that harkens back to the roaring 20’s with eye-popping pinks,yellows, greens, and pastels. Be prepared to unleash your inner fashionista/fashionisto, and if you are undecided on what dandy or vintage look to go for, check out the Pintrest board. Let your star and your smile shine in The Bosco GIF Photobooth, the hottest photo booth loved by Rihanna, Wiz Khalifa, and the Queen Bey herself, Beyonce.

Most importantly, proceeds from Seersucker and Luxe will benefit MoAD’s celebrated exhibitions, public and educational programs which will serve over 40,000 teachers, students,and families every year. Each admission to the party will also include a complimentary MoAD Vanguard membership! Attending Seersucker and Luxe not only gives you an opportunity to mingle and connect with San Francisco’s best and brightest POC’s, but also party with a purpose. So come and enjoy Seersucker and Luxe. You will have a great time and look good doing it, for a fantastic cause.
