TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

APRIL, 2019

Cassandra Brake

What piece of art did you buy?

The Rooster was painted by Marianna Abutalipova.

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

I volunteered with the Boys and Girls Club, JDRF and United Way but most of my hours come from my passion to be a part of Junior Achievement.

What do you like best about the organization you volunteered for?

Each organization serves its own amazing purpose and they touch me in different ways but have found an undeniably great fit with Junior Achievement. It is my absolute pleasure to mentor the youth in our community about financial literacy. With every classroom that I step into, I hope to give each child or young adult valuable information that will empower them at some point in their lives. I know how impactful JA would have been for me as a young adult and I am thrilled that we are now bringing these powerful conversations into classrooms.

What did you like best about your artwork?

I am grateful for the journey that I went on to get my artwork- the experiences I had, the people I met. I love that there are so many colors, it certainly brightens up my office!

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

I love the whole concept of the Timeraiser event. It’s an incredible circle of giving as the sponsors support the artists and the volunteers support the community. It is a great chance to have one on one time with the non-profit agencies, learn more about what opportunities are out there and where you would be a good fit- if you want to volunteer but don’t know where to start, this is the event!

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
  • Adaptive Sports
  • Boogie the Bridge
