White Trash Reception Hits the Hill

July 9, 2012
Yeah, you read that headline right. The lobbying and policy shop Strategic Health Care is hosting a "White Trash Reception on the Hill" next week. We get forwarded a lot of reception invites here at the Alley and we've never seen one quite like this before. It reads: 


Hey y'all - get gussied up in your Sunday jorts, mullets, and fullets and come on down to the White Trash Reception.

White Trash Reception
July 19, 2012
5:30 - 9:30 pm

Grab some suds and grub with Strategic Health Care! Please RSVP (rite so vittles pre-pared) to [email clipped].

Peggy Tighe, Beth Swickard, Jason Gromley, and Kyah Flickinger 

Just to make sure we weren't getting punked, we phoned Swickard, the firm's director of government relations, to ask if the invitation is legit. It is. 

She said the party at the firm's Capitol Hill townhouse gathers lobbyists, Hill staffers and health industry types for some happy hour fun. The firm throws themed parties every couple of months, though past themes have included the decidedly less edgy pirate and cherry blossom varieties. 

So whaddya think, is the white trash party a fun idea or over the top? Let us know in the comments below or via email, cfrates@nationaljournal.com.
