MIX raises critical funds for Philbrook educational programming and Museum operations. Contributions at any level brings creativity to Tulsa.
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 2016, under the leadership of Co-Chairs Sarah and Craig Buchan, served a sellout crowd of 600 and raised over $140,000 to benefit Philbrook educational programming and Museum operations.
In 2016 Ryan Stack of Prairie Brewpub took home the Judges' Choice award. Chris Armstrong of Arnie's Bar earned the People's Choice award.
To date MIX has brought over $400,000 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.
