Falmouth Pops Generates $2500 for the Falmouth Service Center

Funds benefit center that helps neighbors in need

FALMOUTH  - The Falmouth Chamber of Commerce announced today that due to funds raised through the 2006 POPS Goes The Summer festival and concert, presented by Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, $2,500 will be donated to the Falmouth Service Center.

President & CEO of the Falmouth Chamber, Christine Ross stated, "It is our sincere pleasure to donate funds from the proceeds of the POPS Goes The Summer Concert to the Falmouth Service Center, particularly during this celebratory time of year. The role of the Service Center has become more and more important to the core of services supporting family sustainability in the Upper Cape Region and our hope is that this $2,500 check will make these efforts go a bit further."

Dorothy Savarese, President & CEO of Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank, and the Presenting Sponsor of POPS Goes the Summer, states, "POPS turned out to be the perfect chain of events - starting with the Falmouth Chamber who pulled it off this year under pressure coming from an impending, possible perfect storm - followed by a fabulous evening for the thousands who came to enjoy the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra and an unbelievable fireworks display at the end - then now, the byproduct of valuable funds being made available for the community. We're very supportive of the Falmouth Service Center; the staff does a great job and, in turn, invests so much back to the community in important ways. We're just so pleased to have a continuing role with this program."

Carl Cavossa, 2006 POPS Chairman adds, "We are pleased that this great Chamber event has been so well received by the community and that it has prospered to the point that it can start fulfilling its philanthropic vision. Proudly, through the generosity of the POPS presenting sponsors and the financial support of our other sponsoring partners, the Falmouth Service Center will reap a well earned reward."

The Falmouth Service Center (FSC) is a non-profit agency which has been working hand and hand with the community to support and improve the lives of families and individuals in need in the Falmouth area for close to two decades.  Read more about the FSC here.
