MIX began in 2012 on a rooftop in Downtown Tulsa by Philbrook Young Masters Society Members Holly & Jack Allen and Shea & Bruce Roach and continues as one of the hottest mixology contests in the region. In 2013, the event moved to the historic Cain's Ballroom. MIX 2015, under the leadership of Co-Chairs Jillian and Will Ihloff, served a sellout crowd of 550 and raised over $110,000 to benefit Philbrook educational programming and Museum operations. Guests crowned Ryan Stack (formerly of MixCo) the winning mixologist with Libby Billings of Elote coming in a close second. Steve Richardson of The Tavern earned the Judges’ Choice award. To date MIX has brought over $250,000 to Philbrook, while introducing dozens of couples to the Philbrook Young Masters Society, an active group of Members under the age of 40 interested in promoting arts and culture through Philbrook.
