TOMORROW IS TIMERAISER!! (featuring the lovely Angela Carlsen and Jane Rovers!)

Have you heard the rumblings about this exciting and unique fundraiser? Well, it's an incredible event, and it's one that benefits all parties involved. Have a look here at their video explanation:

Or, have a look at this quick rundown from the timeraiser website:

Timeraiser is a volunteer matching fair, a silent art auction, and a night out on the town. The big Timeraiser twist is rather than bid money on artwork, participants bid volunteer hours. Throughout the evening participants meet with various non-profit organizations in the room to find available volunteer opportunities that meet their needs. Once matches are made, the bidding can begin. Winning bidders have 12 months to complete their pledge in order to bring the artwork home as a reminder of their goodwill.

ISN'T THAT THE MOST INCREDIBLE IDEA?!We think so, which is why you'll see us there with our bells on. Also, we're very proud to announce that two of our artists have work up for Auction: Angela Carlsen and Jane Rovers. They're tremendous works, and well worth many hours of volunteering - so make sure you come out and participate in the fun.
