TF is happy to participate as an agency looking for skilled volunteers in the 2010 Timeraiser.
What is Timeraiser? Well, it is part volunteer fair, part silent auction and part night on the town.
Professionals in their 20s and 30s come to the event looking to match their skills with a local non profit (like us) looking for skilled volunteers. Once they find an agency to volunteer with, they can then bid on artwork (silent auction). The twist is, that instead of bidding in money, you bid in volunteer hours for the organization (how great is that?). You then have one year to complete the pledge. Once you do, the art is yours. By the way, the art is work that has been purchased by local artists in the community.
