Patrick M. Butler Charitable Fund, The Ward Family and the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod Donate 1,500 Free Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea Tickets to Needy Families
Centerville, MA---Thanks to a generous donation by the Patrick M. Butler Charitable Fund and The Ward Family, 1,500 free Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea concert tickets will be made available to local needy families.  This special program, involving more than 25 nonprofit health and human services agencies across Cape Cod, will provide free family lawn seating to the 28th Annual Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea concert on Sunday August 11, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.

The concert, held on the Hyannis Village Green, marks the only Cape Cod appearance by the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, with conductor Keith Lockhart, and featuring this year's Celebrity Guest Conductor, Blythe Danner.
"One of the most important aspects of Pops by the Sea is the incredible generosity around this iconic community celebration," said the Arts Foundation's Executive Director, Kevin Howard. "We are grateful for the generosity of these two family foundations in helping to create access for those that would probably not be able to come and enjoy what is always a memorable and moving experience."
The free tickets will be available beginning in July, through the following programs: ACCCESS, Alzheimer's Services of Cape Cod & the Islands, the American Red Cross - Cape Cod and Islands Chapter, the Barnstable County Fatherhood Program, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Cape Cod and the Islands, Inc., the Boys & Girls Club of Cape Cod, Cape Cod Can, the Cape Cod & Islands Council of the Boy Scouts of America, Cape Cod Child Development, the Cape Cod Literacy Council, the Cape Head Injured Person's Housing & Education Group, Inc., CapeAbilities, Duffy Health Center, Homeless Not Hopeless, Gosnold on Cape Cod, Independence House, Inc. the Kennedy Donovan Center, Lower Cape Outreach, Safe Harbor, the Salvation Army, Sight Loss Services, Inc., South Coastal Counties Legal Services, Inc., TCB Inc. at Mashpee Village, the Windsor Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and the YMCA of Cape Cod.
