EVENT RECAP: Timeraiser 2010

Where can you find an event that combines learning about volunteer opportunities, a silent auction for local artwork, appetizers & drinks, all in a classy but relaxed environment? Timeraiser. In a nutshell, this annual art auction event encourages volunteerism towards non-profit activities by offering an opportunity to purchase artwork by pledging volunteer hours instead of money. With 12 months to complete your pledged volunteer hours, when you finally take home your piece of art, it becomes a reminder of your goodwill and experience with Timeraiser.
