It's time to break out the seersucker for the seventh annual Sippin' in Seersucker benefit, an evening of Southern art, cocktails, live music, hors d'oeuvres, fashion and shopping.

  "Everyone decks out in seersucker," says Sue Strachan, public relations director at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. "Suits, dresses, ties, umbrellas — if you can make it out of seersucker, they'll wear it."

  Co-created by the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and The Shops at Canal Place, the event features music by the Preservation Hall All-Stars featuring Tom Sancton and DJ Soul Sister. Included in that price are food and drink — including mint juleps and food from more than 20 vendors, such as The American Sector, La Thai, Delachaise and Baru.

  "It's a great time, a great party and an affordable ticket," Strachan says.
