If the idea of 10 local artists armed with 10 custom-designed baseball bats sounds like a night in heaven to you, you won’t want to miss BATS for BRATS this weekend! Baseball enthusiasts, art lovers and party-goers will want to pop down to Commonwealth on Sunday for a night of baseball, beer and bidding. A free one-night-only charity event, BATs for BRATS features a silent auction of ten unique baseball bats with all profits going to support Kidsport Calgary, a non-profit organization with 178 chapters across Canada that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under.

The bats are handmade in Calgary by Schindel Bats and then customized by local artists, graphic designers and illustrators. Some of my favourite artists and designers like Heather Buchanan and Chris Pecora are participating – I can’t wait to see what they come up with! See the full list of artists here!


It is going to be a great night of art, drinks + with a great fundraising component – you can’t lose. Oh – and it is free. Win – win – win – win – win…..

Sunday, June 12 @ 7pm
