Copperheads to sell Passion Works Studio designed T-shirts

$5 of every sale goes to Passion Works


The Southern Ohio Copperheads will sell T-shirts designed by an artist at Passion Works Studio as a merchandise item this season, marking the first partnership with Passion Works in the organization’s 16-year history.

Passion Works is a studio where Athens community members, with and without disabilities, come to express their artistic talents. Its mission is to beautify the Athens community with its artwork and always raise awareness about the artwork and the artists themselves.

Thanks to the help of Mallory Valentour, and Wendy Minor, who are a part of the Passion Works organization, the Copperheads were able to set up a contest for making a Copperheads merchandise design. Passion Works artists submitted six T-shirt designs featuring a Cheads theme to the organization. When the designs were voted on via social media, Scott Brooks and Jim Gillespie’s design received the most votes. This summer, the Cheads will offer Passion Works merchandise for $20 a shirt.

And right now, with the purchase of a Passion Works T-shirt, $5 of the benefits will go back to Passion Works. This partnership is a great way to raise awareness about the studio and give back to the community.

Get yours June 8 at Homer’s Homecoming! You can also buy the T-shirts at any Copperheads home games at Bob Wren Stadium. Find the schedule on copperheadbaseball.com.
