The Empty Boots Benefit
COVID-19 has affected events across the city and country, including our Empty Bowl Benefit and Put the Boots to Hunger campaigns. We were saddened when we had to cancel these events. So, we got creative and found a way to still host a fun-filled event but with a few adjustments! We wanted to bring together our friends in a fun way and acknowledge all the cowboy boots that aren’t going to be worn this Calgary Stampede (not that we are stopping you, wear those boots!) and thus the idea of Empty Boots was born.
The Empty Boots Benefit, will bring together local personalities to paint from the comfort of their home. Everyone from your favourite news anchor to local artists will get creative by painting a one-of-a-kind ceramic boot which will then be auctioned off July 2-9, 2020.
