Sunday fundraiser for Judge Andrea Michele Buford

Supporters of Judge Andrea Michele Buford's bid for the countywide Veal vacancy are planning a fundraiser for their candidate on Sunday, January 26, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Chicago home of Harriet and Daniel Parker. Tickets for the event are $50 each, but sponsorships are available ($75 - patron, $100 - sponsor). For more information about the event, or to order tickets and obtain directions to the Parker home, please email Celestia Mays.

Judge Buford was appointed to the Veal vacancy by the Illinois Supreme Court and has been slated by the Cook County Democratic Party. Harriet Parker, one of the event hosts, is a Chicago attorney; her husband, Professor Daniel T. Parker, the other event host, is, according to the Buford campaign, a "renowned Black Fine Art collector, African Art professor and author." According to my archives, the accompanying illustration is taken from Parker collection.
