TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

SEPTEMBER, 2018

Terri Axani

What piece of art did you buy?

Mount Rundle by Ed Young
Mount Rundle is a mountain in Canada’s Banff National Park overlooking the towns of Banff and Canmore, Alberta. The Cree name was Waskahigan Watch or house mountain.

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

• Powerstart Program – Boys and Girls Club
• Junior Achievement
• Canadian Cancer Society
• One to One reading- Literacy Program
• Rotary Ribfest
• Boogie the Bridge Society

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

Each agency or organization I work with provides such a valuable service to our amazing community. You volunteer thinking you are giving your time and energy but what you receive in return is so much  more. Volunteering in this community fills my cup.

What do you like best about your artwork?

Canmore is one of my favourite places on earth and looking at this beautiful piece of art from that area immediately transports me back to my happy place. Many memories have been made hiking the hills there with my family. This piece of art shows a reflection that makes me think back to simpler times.  It was a bargain at just 100 volunteer hours and I remember getting into a bidding war with Kelly Hall, who also loved it.

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

I have been part of the Kamloops Timeraiser since day one, with the first couple of years representing a charity and then as a volunteer.  I love the concept of supporting local artists through volunteering.  It is truly a win/win for the community and I appreciate all the volunteers and organizers that work year round to make this an annual 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.

  • Project X
  • People in Motion
  • Kamloops Arts Council
  • Barnhartvale Horse and Hiker Association
  • Special Olympics
  • Kamloops Therapeutic Riding Association
  • Kamloops Kidney Foundation
  • Junior Achievement BC
  • Canadian Cancer Society
  • Kamloops Immigrant Services
  • MS Society
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Kamloops Writers Festival
  • Four Paws Food Bank
  • BC Winter Games
  • Spirit Warriors Breast Cancer Support Group
  • … more to come …
