Lots of blue eye shadow, acid washed jeans with popped up shirt collars, fingerless lace gloves, giant hair bows, and layers of beaded necklaces are totally tubular once again for Rewind: Back to the 80s — the theme for IACP Foundation’s 11th Annual Rx Mixer, a fundraising event to be held in conjunction with IACP’s 21st Annual Compounders on Capitol Hill (CCH)!
Travel back to the place where you uttered slang phrases like “gag me with a spoon,” “like, totally,” “gnarly,” “totally tubular,” “grody,” “grody to the max,” “rad,” “awesome,” or any combination of these words excessively. If your hairdresser couldn’t stop laughing long enough to actually give you the Flock of Seagulls haircut you wanted. And, if you still know all the dance moves to “Thriller.” You know you belong to the 80s.
Our totally awesome guests will be treated to an evening of delicious food and festive cocktails, fellowship, music, dancing, Live Auction, Treasure Boxes and Big Board. Travel back to the 80s in a themed photo booth or try your luck at the blackjack and craps tables. Your support of the Rx Mixer will help fund the IACP Foundation’s research and education initiatives! Enjoy fellowship with pharmacists from around the country while benefiting the IACP Foundation. It’s a Party with a Purpose. Like totally.
If you are interested in sponsoring a table or donating an item or services to the auction, please contact Dagmar Anderson at IACP (281-933-8400).
Tickets are $150 and checks must be made payable to IACP Foundation. You may purchase a ticket to attend the Rx Mixer during your registration process here.
