I'm heading over to the Tavern United tonight for the kickoff of the Winnipeg Timeraiser event.
One of my pieces was chosen as an auction item and tonight everyone is getting together to meet and learn a little more about one another.
The Winnipeg Timeraiser is happening on May 30th. If you're looking for something to do with your volunteer time, check it out.
If I understand everything correctly, a number of organizations are in attendance with information on what they do, giving volunteers a chance to find something that matches their interests. Then people will be given an opportunity to bid on artwork using volunteer time for a specified charity. If your bid takes it, you win! Your artwork will hang in a corporate office somewhere (one of the event sponsors) for a year and when you have completed your volunteer hours, the work goes home with you.
Hence, time raiser.
