Tickets for the 6th Vancouver Timeraiser are now available! A limited number of early bird tickets are available.

Vancouver joins FIVE cities across Canada for Timeraiser Day: Spring Edition. This is the first year events will be taking place simultaneously across the country. Vancouver will be hosting its Timeraiser alongside events in Winnipeg, Calgary, St John’s, Regina and Montreal. The season will wrap up with the Toronto Timeraiser on May 24, and by its close we will have auctioned 150 pieces of art and raised 30,000 volunteer hours.

What Is Timeraiser?

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.
