SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- One of the biggest parties to kick off summer is here!

It's time to "Remember the '80s" and raise money for cystic fibrosis research.

Hosted by AZ's Finest, the annual bash is one of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's signature events and it's now in its fourth year!

The Remember the '80s Party gets under way at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 10, 2011 at Martini Ranch, in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale. 

The very popular '80s cover band Rock Lobster is set to rock the stage from 10 p.m. until midnight. Two other bands will also perform.

Play your favorite video games, bring that big hair and wear lots of neon, baby! Everyone is encouraged to dress in their favorite '80s garb. In fact, a costume contest with celebrity judges is planned. From Madonna look-alikes to rockin' mullets, those who look best, are going to win some incredible prizes.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

All proceeds benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Arizona.
