FuseSocial hosted their eighth annual Timeraiser on April 11, 2019 as part of regional volunteer week.

Volunteer Week is one of the largest initiatives within the FuseSocial Volunteer Resource Management Unit with the goal of promoting volunteerism in the community and acknowledging the tremendous volunteers that make a difference.

Timeraiser is a silent art auction with a twist, instead of bidding with money, the participants bid with volunteer hours. The winning bidders have one year to complete their hours through volunteering with some of the local social profits in our community.

This year a total of 50 pieces of art were up for action, 34 at the main exhibit and 16 at the Budding Artists Exhibit. With 150 people attending the auction, 2273 volunteer hours were raised.
