Mispillion Brewing and Milford Museum are partnering for a Tax Freedom Day

Mispillion Brewing Company and the Milford Museum have partnered for an event to be held on April 15 from 1 to 4 PM at the brewery. The event, Tax Freedom Day, will have a 1930s theme and is designed to promote membership in the Milford Museum.

“We are excited to partner with the museum for this fun, unique event,” Kevin DiCostanzo, Events and Concessions Manager, said. “We all know how stressful tax day can be, so we thought this would be a great way to get people out to enjoy a cold craft beer, enjoy some live music and support the museum at the same time.

The event will feature music by Wooden Nickels and food by Coco Mango Island Grille. There will be 30’s era selfie stations and attendees can even meet President Franklin Roosevelt who will be in attendance. Not only will museum volunteers be available to talk about their many membership options, some will be portraying famous Depression-era characters.

“We are always looking for different ideas to promote the museum,” Denise Curtis, chair of the museum Membership Committee, said. “Although we usually do events like this as fund raisers, we thought this would be a different change of pace. We are looking for members and we offer a wide range of membership options, so we would love to take the opportunity to chat with people and let them know how they can support our mission.”

Individual memberships receive 10 percent off all gift shop items, invitations to exclusive members-only events, subscription to the museum e-newsletter and early access to tickets for select events. Family memberships receive the same benefits as individuals but for up to two adults and four children.

“We are especially excited about our Reciprocal membership,” Curtis said. “Not only do those who sign up for a reciprocal membership get the same benefits as individual and family members, they also become members of the North American Reciprocal Museum Program, or NARM, which offers discounts to attractions around the world. We also have contributor, patron and corporate sponsorship levels as well and we are thrilled to be able to explain all of them in person.”
