A large bag of dog or cat food, or a $10 donation, was the cover charge Friday night at OT Sports and Social, which was part of a fundraiser for the Washington County/Johnson City Animal Shelter. 

Bar Manager Chase Richardson said the bands that played — Syren; Before the Storm; John King and Ryan Asbury; and the Railway Express Band — performed free of charge for the event. He helped organize the fundraiser to help the shelter. In addition to the cover charge, half of the proceeds raised during a dart competition that night was also donated to the shelter.

“I got a cat from the animal shelter about a year ago and my girlfriend got a dog there two years ago,” Richardson said. “We like to go play with the animals and thought it would be a good idea to do the fundraiser.”
