The Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department will sponsor Shepherd’s Inn Night today, Aug. 28, with The Elizabethton Twins. There will be a team photograph given to the first 500 fans with proceeds contributed to The Shepherd’s Inn courtesy of Walgreen Drug Store.
“We are happy to sponsor The Shepherd’s Inn Night as part of our Twins season,” said Mike Mains, director of Elizabethton Parks and Recreation and manager of the Elizabethton Twins. “The Shepherd’s Inn is a vital part of our community and worthy of our fan support.” Beginning at 6 p.m. The Shepherd’s Inn will be serving sundaes and ice cream floats. Sundaes are $3 and floats are $2. All proceeds will go directly to The Shepherd’s Inn, which is Elizabethton/Carter County’s only emergency shelter assisting victims of domestic violence and temporarily homeless women and their children.
The Shepherd’s Inn is a 24/7 operation. Shelter funding relies totally on gifts from the community. The shelter has been serving the Carter County community since 1997.
Everyone is invited for a fun night and support for the league’s best team — the Elizabethton Twins and The Shepherd’s Inn.
