Montreal Timeraiser event

Now this is an amazing idea! Montreal will be hosting its first ever Timeraiser event on Thursday April 12, 2012 at Marché Bonsecours. What is this Timeraiser event you ask? It’s a “silent auction” where people bid on artwork not with money but with volunteer hours to local agencies. About 20 works of art by Montreal artists are up for auction, all paid in advance by various sponsors. The goal is to reach the 20-40 demographic who are not used to volunteering, but who are interested in purchasing art. The person with the winning bid then has 12 months to complete his pledge in exchange for the artwork. The Volunteer Bureau of Montreal will be hosting a preview tomorrow evening at the Arts Café. For more information, please visit Timeraiser.
