The 9th Annual Toronto Timeraiser
This is it! Our 9th Toronto Timeraiseris March 24th 2012 at the Fermenting Cellar. Participate in one of Toronto’s most dynamic volunteer and arts focused events and help us reach our goal of raising 10,000 volunteer hours. Don’t wait to get your tickets – last year’s tickets sold out in record time.
Saturday March 24th
Doors open at 7:00pm
at the Fermenting Cellar> Distillery District> 55 Mill Street
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at timeraiser.ca. Once you have purchased your ticket online, you are on our guest list. No paper ticket necessary.
The Timeraiser is part volunteer fair, part silent art auction, and part night on the town. Throughout the evening meet with non-profit organizations and match your skills to their needs. Once you have made your matches, you are eligible to bid on artwork. The big twist is rather than bid money, you bid volunteer hours. If you have the winning bid, you have 12 months to complete your pledge before bringing the artwork home as a reminder of your goodwill.
