Sunday Night Fever - 9th Annual Rx Mixer Raises More Than $205,000!
Boogie down! The ‘70s were all about disco balls, polyester shirts, gold chains, platform shoes and shakin your groove thang. Sunday, June 2nd was certainly a groovy night at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Va. More than 280 compounders from across the country gathered at Sunday Night Fever, the 9th Annual Rx Mixer, to support the IACP Foundation’s mission of quality, integrity and advancement of pharmacy compounding for the benefit of patients! IACP Foundation President Shara Rudner, RPh, FIACP, welcomed guests to this year’s event, emphasizing that Rx Mixer was a Party with a Purpose, and one of the primary ways to ensure the future of pharmacy compounding.
Our funky music deejay kept the retro tunes spinning and kept the dancers on the LED disco dance floor. The party rocked not only with the oldie-but-goldie disco tunes but also with the costuming indulged in by at least half of the revelers. Wigs, platform shoes, go-go boots, gold lame and sequins punctuated the party attire.
The evening began with cocktails, blackjack, craps and poker in the ballroom where gaming tables were complemented by a bountiful line-up of raffle packages and Treasure Boxes. We showcased our disco themed party with ‘70s food such as disco fries, chicken pot pies, mac and cheese, mini burgers, fondue and other tempting treats.
At the end of the live auction, attendees generously contributed to Fund-the-Future, providing student scholarships for attending Compounders on Capitol Hill 2014. The event brought in more than $205,000 in gross revenues –besting the evening’s $165,000 objective, and last year’s results by more than $36,000!
