About The Event
Soon to be that time of year for fall fundraisers, Mixolo wants you to sit, stand, run or dance with us, whatever it takes to get you out and supporting the many great mission-driven and impactful “social good” organizations whose operations rely heavily on annual events.
Join us for perennial favorite Flip Flop Festivus at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore for the 10th anniversary of this extraordinary event and connect with a community of do-good adventurers and givers who just want to have fun - social good fun. No plus-one required.
Come on out and celebrate the last full night of summer with spectacular sunset views of the harbor, exceptional entertainment and more while supporting a valiant cause. On this highly anticipated occasion, we will be celebrating and helping to further the good work of the Life and Breath Foundation.
This 501(c)3 champions research and programs for the serious and rare disease, Sarcoidosis, a condition where lumps called granulomas develop at different sites within the body. These granuloma are made up of clusters of cells involved in inflammation. If many granuloma form in an organ, it can prevent that organ from working properly. Sarcoidosis can affect many different parts of the body. It often affects the lungs but can also affect the skin, eyes, joints, nervous system, heart and other body parts.
Two notable celebrities that have succumbed to the disease are the late comedian and former "King of Comedy," Bernie Mac and legendary football player and Hall of Famer, Reggie White. Of course, this is not just about celebrities (though many will be on hand!) or the memorable experience the Life and Breath Foundation provides at their annual fundraiser at the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore.
The cause is a noble one and we want you to join our "table-of-ones." Expect an elegant evening featuring sumptuous cuisine that do-good foodies will definitely enjoy, themed cocktails, raffle prizes and an exciting live auction of highly sought-after sports and travel packages. Did we mention you can choose to dance all night to the sounds of DJ Lyndon "Smoky" Landsdowne? Don't know him? You won't forget him or this exciting evening.
About the Venue:
The Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore with its elegant appointments and top-rated restaurants has created an urban retreat for hotel guests and locals alike. Located at the edge of Baltimore’s Harbor East, the waterfront location boasts beautiful views and makes for the perfect location for a "social good" affair.
More about Life and Breath Foundation:
The Life and Breath Foundation, based in Ellicott City, MD, is a champion for patients and their loved ones managing Sarcoidosis and navigating the health system. The foundation relies on the goodness and generosity of their donors to further their efforts toward saving lives affected by Sarcoidosis, an often debilitating and deadly disease.
From their website www.lifeandbreath.org "Sarcoidosis is difficult to diagnose and can look like many other diseases, including multiple sclerosis, lymphoma and asthma. Consequently, there is no single way to diagnose Sarcoidosis. Often Sarcoidosis is discovered as part of a routine exam or an effort to evaluate symptoms thought to be caused by another illness. " Their ongoing mission is to help patients and their loved ones live well and become their own advocates.
