Braves Wives Association auction, Trainee Fair, and the last Bark in the Park

Scott Cunningham

The Braves' series against the Padres this weekend is packed with charity events and promotions for fans, both two and four-legged.

Starting on Friday the 13th, the Braves Wives Association will be auctioning off baskets for anti-bullying. The gift baskets are filled with players' favorite things, and the auction is in the Main Plaza from 5 p.m. until the 5th inning. Kris Medlen's is particularly impressive:

Also that night, the second El Oso Blanco Night still has tickets available. The $32 package includes an outfield pavilion seat in the "Bear Cave," a Gattis themed shirt, and foam bear claw. More information can be found here.

If you don't necessarily want to sit in the Bear Cave on Friday, tickets are available at a reduced price for Public Safety Night. There will be a special pre-game ceremony honoring first responder heroes and their families. Tickets priced from $10-$20 can be purchased here.

For those looking to potentially work for the Braves, spots are still available for the Trainee Career Fair before the 7:00 tip on the 14th. For $15, participants get to talk to various staff from the Braves front office and share their resumes. Spots are still available here.

The 15th is the last Bark in the Park of the season for fans and their dogs. Dogs and their humans get a Braves collar and special roped off section of the stadium, complete with pools, misters, and ice cream. The only times I ever wish I had a dog are when this event comes around. The pictures make it look so fun. Tickets and information can be found here.

For those fans not bringing pets to the Ted, special Pay It Forward tickets can be bought for Sunday's game. To honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Braves and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta are offering special ticket prices which include a $5 donation to CHOA to fight for a cure. To support the cause, tickets can be purchased here.
