Celebrate Your Birthday with Trash-o-Saurus

One Lucky Person will Receive a Birthday Party at the CRRA Garbage Museum

STRATFORD, Conn. – Since it opened in 1995, the CRRA Garbage Museum has welcomed more than 300,000 people who came to learn to take better care of our environment, but nobody has ever been to the Garbage Museum for a birthday party.


The Garbage Museum is offering a chance for one lucky person between the ages of 3 and 12 to enter a drawing for a complete birthday party at the Museum. Entries are $5 each, with forms available at the Garbage Museum. One entry will be chosen at random at the CRRA Garbage Museum on Wednesday, June 15, 2011.

Proceeds of the raffle will benefit the Garbage Museum and its award-winning sustainability education programs.

“We’ve never hosted a birthday party before, so this really will be a unique prize for one lucky girl or boy,” said Education Supervisor Sotoria Montanari.  

The person selected and 25 of his or her guests can celebrate with Trash-o-saurus, a one-ton dinosaur made from trash. The party will include a Museum tour, a craft activity, a movie, a goodie bag for each guest, cupcakes, ice cream, juice and decorations.

All entries must be received by Tuesday, June 14, 2011. The person selected need not be present at the drawing.

The CRRA Garbage Museum is located at 1410 Honeyspot Road Extension, Stratford. For more information, call 203-381-9571 or find the Garbage Museum on Facebook. Admission is $2 per person, free for children age 3 and under.
