Uh, yah, you read that title right. I am so excited to announce the biggest contest ever here at Downtown Peggy!
WestJet tickets, valued up to $4,604!
That’s one return trip for two people to any scheduled WestJet destination, departing from Canada. The tickets are good until May 4, 2012 and have a maximum prize value of $4,604.
The contest is to promote an event called Timeraiser where people bid on artwork and “pay” with volunteer hours. It’s happening Friday, May 6 at 7pm at the West End Cultural Centre at 586 Ellice Avenue. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at timeraiser.ca.
Timeraiser is part volunteer fair, part silent art auction and part night on the town. Throughout the evening, meet with different non-profit agencies and match your skills to their needs. Once you have made your matches, you are eligible to bid on artwork.
The big twist is rather than bidding money, you bid volunteer hours. If you have the winning bid you have 12 months to complete your pledge before bringing the artwork home as a reminder of your goodwill.
For more info on the event visit their Facebook page.
