The 5th annual Timeraiser is happening Thursday, November 8, 2012 at the Roundhouse in Yaletown. It’s the only event around that combines supporting local artists through an artwork auction with raising volunteer hours for local causes.

Tickets are currently on sale for $20 and the goal is to raise 4,000 volunteer hours at the event. This would equal to everyone in attendance pledging 20 hours over the next 12 months.

Each artist is paid a fair value for their piece in exchange for having them auction it off for volunteer time. Non-profit agencies can apply to be recipients of the volunteer hours and get exposure through the event.
