Join Us at Vancouver Timeraiser!

By Leah Yee, CEF Social Media Coordinator  

It’s that time of year again – CEF is pleased to announce we have been selected to participate in the 5th annual Vancouver Timeraiser event! Timeraiser takes place on November 8th at 7pm at the Roundhouse Community Center in Yaletown and is an amazing opportunity for non-profit organizations to connect with new volunteers. Attendees are given a chance to explore and learn about the 28 different participating organizations, and find the perfect volunteer opportunity to suit their needs. The evening also includes a silent art auction featuring local artists, whereby people bid volunteer hours instead of money towards the art pieces. There are 17 beautiful paintings up for auction and this year.   Timeraiser has pledged to raise 4,000 volunteer hours. The event is described as “part volunteer fair, part silent art auction and part night on the town” and we at CEF are so excited to be involved in such a fantastic event! Tickets for night are $20 and can be purchased on the Timeraiser website.

In the past three years we have found some great volunteers through the Timeraiser event and are looking forward to meeting new members of our community this year!  So, if you're looking to do some good and help out a great non-profit, why not Join us at Vancouver Timeraiser?
