First Commerce Credit Union has teamed up with The Edison to kick off the summer and take a totally awesome trip back to the 1980s. Tease your hair, tight roll your jeans, and pop your collar during Mugs & Movies, the next fundraising initiative for the FCCU FOUNDATION, our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supporting financial literacy in the community.
The first in a series of movie-themed events that will rotate venues around town, Mugs & Movies is scheduled for Friday, June 10 from 6 to 11 pm at The Edison. Guests can play 80s movie trivia hosted by Greg Tish beginning at 6 pm, watch a special viewing of “National Lampoon’s Vacation” at 8 pm, enjoy a gourmet popcorn bar, plus sample food provided by The Edison and locally crafted beer supplied by Grassland Brewery.
“This flashback event was created as a tribute to Mugs & Movies located in Market Square back in the 1980s,” and is a fun way to raise funds for First Commerce’s latest fundraising initiative, which will help us continue to broaden our financial literacy efforts in our community through our FCCU Foundation, which is currently providing regular classes at TCC, FAMU, Chipola College and beyond,” said Kristin Richardson, Sr. Public Relations Specialist.
Tickets can be purchased for $25, including one movie ticket, two drink tickets, plus a seat on the lawn. A seating option on the patio with appetizers and two drink tickets is available for $50. Want the VIP experience? Purchase a table of four, including dinner & dessert on the balcony, plus two drink tickets per guest for $300.
