On Monday, December 28, 2009 from 12pm – 1pm, a dumpster,shredder and sledge hammer will be stationed on the Broadway Plaza between 46th and 47th Streets to discard any distasteful, embarrassing and downright depressing memories from 2009.
and a prize will be awarded for the most creative entry:
Participants are also invited to write their bad memories on stationery available on-site and watch as those awful recollections get sliced into shreds. A Grand Prize of $250 will be awarded to the Most Creative entry.
The first 100 participants will receive a Special Gift!
