We love getting to spend time with you outside of the pharmacy and one of our favorite things to do is hang out with you at community events! Here are a few of the events that we will be participating in this month. Mark the date on your calendar and make sure you stop by our table and say hello, get a flu shot, cheer us on, and pick up some swag!
Fourth Annual Dragon Boat Festival – September 23, 2017
Join us at the Triangle’s Fourth Annual Dragon Boat Festival at Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheater on Saturday, September 23, 2017.
This celebration of Asian culture includes dragon boat races, dozens of live stage performances, games for kids, food vendors, cultural and health information booths, and more!
The event is from 9 a.m. until 4: 30 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance and $8 on the day of the event. Children 12 and under get in free and for seniors, tickets are $4 in advance and $7 on the day of the event.
Flu Shots on Site
We will be providing FREE flu shots to anyone with Medicare B, TRICARE, or Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. Don’t have one of those? No problem! Flu shots are just $30.
We know getting the flu shot is no fun. Go ahead and get it out of the way so you do not have to worry about it as the weather gets colder. Plus, skip out on having to make a special trip to get yours done later in the year. Getting the flu shot is not just about protecting yourself, it also helps the community. When you get the flu shot you are helping keep seniors and kids safe.
Don’t worry, shots are not all we are giving away! Make sure you stop by and pick up 501 Pharmacy hand sanitizer and magnets!
Pepperfest is celebrating its’ 10th year on Sunday, September 24, 2017, and we will be there to help them celebrate! This event takes place from 3 to 6 p.m. at Great Meadow Park at Briar Chapel in Chapel Hill. Pepperfest is a celebration of the harvest, cooler weather, and a chance to savor the deliciousness of Carolina peppers!
Come hungry to hang out with friends, listen to live music, and sample delicious pepper-themed beverages and dishes made by dozens of star chefs, brewers, distillers, and artisans.
Tickets are $30. Children, six and under get in free and kids ages seven to 12 get in for just $5.
