You're Invited: The Toxies!

Minnesota Rising reader, Katie Rojas-Jahn, was kind enough to submit an announcement about an upcoming event that she and Healthy Legacy are organizing entitled, "The Toxies!" Playing off the acclaim of the Oscars, the Emmys, and the Grammys, The Toxies is a satirical awards show that recognizes "bad actor chemicals." Dress up to the nines, be considered a VIP, and paint the town red (using non-lead paint) because The Toxies are coming to town!

You've heard of the Oscars, the Emmys and the Grammys, but now there's a new, up-and-coming awards ceremony: The Toxies. Join us for this free event on Thursday, June 16th at Intermedia Arts (map) from 5:15-7:30 pm. From 5:15-6:00 there will be a reception with light appetizers and drinks. The awards show will begin following the reception. RSVP now!

The Toxies is a satirical awards show that recognizes “bad actor chemicals," referred to as such by researchers due to their harmful effects and prevalence in our lives. Formaldehyde, Bisphenol A (BPA), Lead and others will be in attendance. These chemicals—portayed at the show by actual, good actors—are known to contribute to certain types of cancer, development disorders, infertility and other health problems. They are in our homes, workplaces and schools, and it’s time they are recognized for their harmful effects.

Help raise awareness around the important issue of toxic chemicals in our every day products. RSVP now to this limited-seating event for free!

And don't forget to vote below for Minnesota's People's Choice Award for Worst Performance of the Year by a toxic chemical. The winning toxic chemical will receive a Minnesota Toxie Award live at the event.
