JOIN US FOR THIS UNIQUE EVENT

FRIDAY,
NOVEMBER 15TH, 2019

The Kamloops This Week Timeraiser is a part volunteer fair, part silent art auction and part night on the town. Throughout the evening, participants meet with different non-profits in the room and match their skills to the organizations’ needs. Once they have made their matches, they are eligible to bid on artwork.

The big twist is rather than bid money, they bid volunteer hours on works of art they are interested in. The winning bidders then have 12 months to complete their volunteer pledge before bringing the artwork home as a reminder of their goodwill.

This year the event is at being held at the newly renovated REX Hall (the old Cactus Jacks location) and will feature live music by Kelly Spencer.

Once the auction is over, we announce the hours raised and then celebrate all of the contributions to the art an non-profit communities.

What you can expect:
6:30 pm – Doors Open
7:00 pm – Meet With Nonprofits – Match Your Skills to their Needs while previewing artwork
8:00 pm – Bid on Artwork (Optional)
8:30 pm – 2018 Art Winners accept their artwork
9:00 pm – Silent Auction Ends
9:30 pm – Hours are announced, people celebrate, music picks up
11:00 pm – Say goodbye for another year

KTW TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

Enjoy these stories of previous KTW TimeRaiser Participants! We meet up with previous participants to ask some interesting questions about their experience of the event, the volunteering, and of course, the art!

OUR EVENT

SPONSORS

All the artwork in a Kamloops This Week Timeraiser is purchased at market value  - none of the artists were asked to donate their work.  This is one of the key principles of the Kamloops This Week Timeraiser - it supports the careers of emerging artists in our community.  Corporate and personal donations pay for all the pieces - their generosity is a key part of the Timeraiser's success.

OUR PARTICIPATING

AGENCIES

We aim to have 20 different agencies in attendance at the Kamloops This Week Timeraiser.  Each agency is present with a spokesperson to tell you about their mission, volunteer opportunities and answer any questions you have.  This list will grow and change slightly until we finalize everyone.

  • MS Society
  • Brennans Ugly Sweater Run
  • Kamloops Arts Council
  • People in Motion
  • Kamloops Society for the Written Arts

  • Boogie the Bridge
