EGGfest 2018 – Come Join the Fun!

It’s July, so that means it’s EGGfest time! If you’ve never attended our EGGfest, we invite you to join us!

What’s an EGGfest?

Our EGGfest is an annual event where we celebrate summer, our wonderful community, and the great work done by one of our local charities. This year’s proceeds will benefit Operation Care.

There’ll be delicious food, vendors, family fun, and a fundraiser raffle. We’ll be grilling on the Big Green Egg alongside other EGG enthusiasts.  (If you aren’t familiar with the Big Green Egg, check out our recent post for more info about this great grilling system.)

This year’s EGGfest is a part of the Shelbyville Horse Show Jubilee. If you haven’t already guessed, we’re more than a little excited!

About Operation Care  

Operation Care is a “Christian ministry that seeks to provide for the physical, spiritual, emotional, and social well being of people in need of a loving, compassionate environment in the name of Jesus Christ.”

This fine organization has served our community for over 30 years, helping those in need with services such as housing for women and children, and the Mercy Medical Clinic, which is a state licensed medical and dental care program. Operation Care’s outreach also includes a food pantry and an emergency assistance program that provides clothing, food, and home furnishings for loss due to fire, flood, or financial crisis.

This much-needed ministry garners the means to help our community through donations, volunteers, and purchases at their Encore Thrift Shop at 708 Main Street in Shelbyville.  Our goal through this year’s EGGfest is to lend a hand, helping to further supply the necessary resources Operation Care needs to continue their work in the Shelbyville area. Won’t you please join us in helping such a great cause?
