TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

DECEMBER, 2018

Bonnie McBride

What piece of art did you buy?

I have successfully bid twice. I have 2 beautiful and vibrant paintings by local artists that hang in my home.

What organization(s) did you volunteer with to pay for your art?

I volunteered with Project X Theatre, The BC SPCA, Four Paws Food Bank and my children’s PAC to complete my hours over the two years.What ‘s best about the organization? I met a lot of new people and developed some great friendships volunteering over the last few years. The fires in 2017 were particularly intense and the other volunteers I met during that time have become very important to me and my family. I’ve always gotten so much out of volunteering that it’s hard to feel like I am giving back. I’ve also learned a lot about our community and some of the projects and programs I didn’t know existed. Even just connecting with the groups that attend the evening is an eye opener.

What do you like best about your artwork?

Both of my pieces are vibrant works with lots of feeling. I love the texture both artists were able to achieve with their techniques. I can’t wait to add to my collection in subsequent auctions!

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

I’ve attend the Timeraiser both as a bidder and a community partner. I love seeing all the people interested in giving back to our community. The people that attend range in age and background and belief systems greatly. With Four Paws Food Bank, it’s been great to be able to connect with people and have a real opportunity to talk to them about what it is we do and how they can be part of it. Some of our most engaged volunteers have come to us from the Timeraiser!

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
