The Myers family already has brought the Elkin community closer together through swimming, and now, the swim team is giving back.
The team is hosting a benefit at the Elkin City Pool Sunday from 5 to 9 p.m. to benefit Zach Myers, who is still recovering after a tragic shooting occurred just two weeks ago.
His wife, Sybil Myers, is one of the swim coaches for the Elkin Wet Lightning, a travel swim team for children of all ages that has meets throughout the summer. Zach Myers is also the chairman for the National Dairy Board, so it’s without question that the family has done good for the community.
Admission is $3, which includes swimming. The event also will feature food for sale, a silent auction, and DJ Crazy Chris providing entertainment.
All donations will go directly to the Myers family.
