An Elephant in Your Mailbox!


Here's a magic trick worthy of P.T. Barnum: How do you fit an elephant in your mailbox? Easy! Just purchase a set of Carousel Note Cards from the Bridgeport Hospital gift shop!

Why would you want to fit an elephant in your mailbox? Because when you purchase the note cards, you're supporting Fairfield County's most impressive constellation of pediatric services. Proceeds from the cards benefit Bridgeport Hospital's P.T. Barnum Pediatric Center, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, and Children's Emergency Center. In Fairfield County, only Bridgeport Hospital offers all of these pediatric services.

The note cards are reproductions of the carousel mural painted by artist Mary Salvio on the walls of the P.T. Barnum Pediatric Center at Bridgeport Hospital. The mural was commissioned by Leah Darak, MD, in memory of her infant son Zachary. The note cards are $2 each or $15 for a complete set of seven plus two postcards.

Stop in at the gift shop Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. or Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We'll be glad to see you!
