Get Ready To MX. It Up With Room to Roam!

Summer hasn’t exactly gotten off to the brilliant start we are used to here in the sunny Okanagan. However, it is summer and there are few things better during this time of year than getting together with friends in the evening to mix, mingle, and catch up. Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc. is pleased to announce that we’re bringing back the original MX. on Thursday, July 23, 2020! Well, maybe not exactly “The MX. OG”…read on!

We’re thrilled to invite you to join us at Dunnenzie’s Pizza Co. in the Lower Mission (4638 Lakeshore Rd) from 5:30-7:30 pm. We’ll be keeping it social and keeping it safe; physical distancing measures will be in place ‘MXing’ it up with creative ways for everyone to get a chance to meet and make new connections.

Rather than our usual “food station” set-up, Dunnenzie’s (our gracious Host Partner who is providing the snacks and a welcome beverage for all in attendance) will offer a variety of appy plates upon arrival; register, grab your food and a drink, and get mingling! 

Not familiar with The MX.? The MX. was created as an opportunity for the LGBT2Q+ community to network, gather, and socialize. This is also an opportunity to meet like minded people away from those lovely apps. Allies are encouraged to join; the more, the merrier! 

In addition to meeting super fab people, the MX. also fundraises for the Etcetera Youth Group and 100% of the entrance fee will be donated to them. Space is available on a first come first serve basis. Please register in advance so we can let Dunnenzie’s know how much food should be prepared for our guests. Suggested donation for admission is $10 (or $5 for students (19+) with valid student ID).

Dunnenzie’s will also be assisting us in our on-going fundraising efforts for Etcetera by creating a “Mystery Prize Table”. For $20 per ticket, you’ll have the chance to win…something fabulous! Or, something else. Dunnenzie’s generous suppliers and partner merchants will be providing the prizes–what the prizes may be is for us to know and for you to find out!

If you’re planning on joining us, we hope you’ll reach out to some of your friends and work colleagues and consider safe carpooling. Parking at this location can be challenging, and keep in mind that they will be open to the public as well. 

The MX. is presented by TD Bank, and proudly supported by Okanagan Young Professionals Collective, Sarah Sucloy Real Estate, Friends of Dorothy and EzTix.

We look forward to seeing you for our garden party at The MX. on Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 5:30-7:30pm at Dunnenzie’s in the Lower Mission. Questions? Please reach out to Kris Johnson, Manager of Logistics & Partnerships for Rebellious Unicorns Production Company Inc. by email kris@rebelliousunicorns.com

The MX. is held on the unceded, traditional territory of the syilx (Okanagan) people.
