“That puts us over $188,000 in total donations since we began in 2014, and we hope with good audience sizes for our ‘Give a Hoot 7’ concert by the Pops Chorus Folksingers on Sept. 27, and our holiday concert on Dec. 5, we will be over $200,000 in total donations by the end of the year,” said Villager Bill Davis, the group’s leader.
