The Event

The Virginia Beach brand of the NAACP in collaboration with Oceanfront Premiere and its Purple Events will host an upcoming Community Leaders VIP Brunch during the most anticipated and widely publicized event of Something in The Water Festival (SITW) happening in the City of Virginia Beach from 28 April- 30 April, 2023. Located in the resort district of Virginia Beach, this event, will include Community Leaders in and around the seven cities of Hampton Roads.

Our main purpose for this event is to create exposure for our community and the leaders in our city to provide a meaningful event for Community Leaders and friends in this region, while raising awareness and funds for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. We are taking this time to also recognize 3x Platinum Super Producer, Hannon Lane.  He has been one of the many success stories in our Hampton Roads creative community, and has earned this recognition.  We are expecting a large turnout from our community and look forward to seeing you April 28, 10a at Oceanfront Premiere!
