Pops at the Post: Organizers to pass the hat again this year
Last year, concert organizers fell slightly short of their goal, so they decided to “pass the hat” at the Pops at the Post concert.
Volunteers passed around red, white and blue hats, and concert-goers were happy to oblige.
The Pops board met its fundraising goal, says Audrey Eudy, board president.
“Everybody seemed to be fine with it so we decided to try it again this year,” she says. “The concert is absolutely free, but families who want to express their appreciation for the event can do so in the easiest and simplest way.”
“I think it’s lovely that people can pay what they want,” says Linda Jones, Salisbury Symphony’s executive director.
She and Eudy also express their thankfulness for the concert’s major donors, who help the event continue year after year.
“We couldn’t do it without them,” Jones says.
