WEST PALM BEACH, FL (December 14, 2009) – Circuit Sound, the Clerk & Comptroller’s volunteer employee choir, raised holiday spirits and money for charity this morning. Carolers performed holiday songs in the first floor atrium of the Governmental Center in West Palm Beach, while those watching from the six floors above sent cash donations floating down. 

The annual tradition is a favorite for employees in the downtown building which houses offices of the Clerk, Tax Collector, Property Appraiser and Board of County Commissioners.  This year’s performance raised $500 for The Lord’s Place—a nonprofit, non-sectarian organization dedicated to helping the homeless.
Circuit Sound performances have raised more than $5,000 for local charities since 1997.  Overall, the Clerk & Comptroller's office has donated more than half a million dollars to charities through its various fundraising activities.   

The Florida Constitution established the independent office of the Clerk & Comptroller as a public trustee, responsible for safeguarding public records and public funds. Clerk Sharon Bock is directly elected by and accountable to Palm Beach County residents.  In addition to the roles of Clerk of the Circuit Court, County Recorder and Clerk of the Board of County Commissioners, the Clerk & Comptroller is the Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Auditor for Palm Beach County.
