Bristol County Savings Bank Awards $20,000 Grant as Sponsor of New Bedford's Holiday Happenings and City Celebrates! New Year's Eve!TAUNTON, MA, December 20, 2017 — Bristol County Savings Bank (BCSB), through its charitable foundation, recently awarded a $20,000 grant to the City of New Bedford as part of the Bank’s role as overall sponsor of the current Holiday Happenings and City Celebrates! New Year’s Eve! festivities.  The community has enjoyed several weekends of exciting and engaging programming which all lead up to a host of family fun activities to ring in 2018 on Sunday, December 31st, including the traditional fireworks display.

“It’s hard to believe we have been the lead sponsor of City Celebrates! for eight consecutive years but it’s always exciting for us to be a part of what has become a great New Bedford tradition of engaging holiday programing for the community to enjoy and ring in the New Year,” said Patrick J. Murray, Jr., President & CEO of Bristol County Savings Bank and President, Bristol County Savings Charitable Foundation (BCSCF).  Murray added that since 2007, the Foundation has donated more than $4 million to 501©(3) organizations in the Southcoast.

“New Year’s Eve City Celebrates in New Bedford is a wonderful opportunity for area families and visitors to enjoy many free, fun events for all ages in our historic downtown,” said Jon Mitchell, Mayor, City of New Bedford. “We’re grateful for the generous support of Bristol County Savings Bank for sponsoring City Celebrates which, along with the many important causes they support, demonstrates the Bank’s commitment to the community.”
