TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

APRIL, 2019

Nickie Lasaga

What piece of art did you buy?

The Artwork that I earned by volunteering in our great community is “Exodus” by Shelley Penner.

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

I did 100 hours of Volunteer work with Kamloops Alliance Church, Operation Red Nose, Canadian Blood Services, Canadian Cancer Society, Kamloops Art Council, Kamloops Food Bank,Beta Sigma Phi and Kamloops Adopt a Road.

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

I enjoy volunteering with different organizations. It gives me the opportunity to learn from different people and to help in different ways. It is very rewarding to see how many lives are touched by these great organizations as well as impacting my community.

What do you like best about your artwork?

The artwork is amazing. The definition of Exodus is the movement of lot of people from a place. It means ‘going out’ in Latin. It is about how the Hebrew people were lead out of Egypt in the bible. When I look at the art I see movement and peace.

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

The Timerasier Event is a great evening. It give you an opportunity to mingle with people from our community with the common interest of giving back. The artwork is amazing. So many pieces to bid on. It’s a elegant evening with great food and socializing. Great opportunity to learn about all the different organizations around Kamloops. I highly recommend this event to anyone who wants to give back to the community and gain some beautiful artwork.
