8th Toronto Timeraiser
The Fermenting Cellar in the DISTILLERY DISTRICT, Toronto, Canada
Saturday March 19, 2011
Doors open at 7 pm.
My photograph, Mists in Idleness, has been purchased for the 8th Toronto Timeraiser event!
Timeraiser was conceptualized in 2002 in response to a group of friends wondering how it could be easier to find meaningful, relevant volunteer opportunities.
The Timeraiser works like this:
The agenda for the Timeraiser is (6:30 start in Vancouver):
07:00 pm – Doors Open
08:00 pm – Welcoming Remarks, MC
08:30 pm – Silent Art Auction Begins
09:30 pm – Silent Art Auction Ends
10:00 pm – Winners Announced
We suggest that everyone who attends the Timeraiser make a pledge to volunteer a certain number of hours in the community, we recommend 20 hours . Even if you don’t want to bid on artwork, if everyone who attends pledges to do 20 hours, we’d raise 8,000 hours.
When you arrive:
-Your name will be on our list if you register online
-Just visit the Registration Desk to pick up your personalized “Welcome Kit”
-Meet with agencies, discuss if their is a match between your skills/their needs
-On your Welcome Card check off the agencies you are interested in connecting with
-Return your Welcome Card to the front desk, this is a must if you want to bid on artwork
-See FAQs for complete art bidding rules and what happens if you have a winning bid.
It is up to you and the agency to determine if there is a volunteer fit in the days, weeks, months after the Timeraiser. Go to the FAQ section to see more details about agency matching.
