Time for Art

Time for Art

March 21, 2023 | 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Join us for our United Way Time for Art silent art auction. A special event filled with local art, live music, light snacks, beverages and so much more. Hosted by United Way Young Leaders United.

Throughout the evening you will browse through our art gallery filled with donated artwork by local artists and hobbyists. Each piece of art will be available for you to take home through a silent auction-style bidding process. 

But here's where the twist comes in -- 

You will be bidding with your time!

Your volunteer hours are the currency for the evening. Write down the number of volunteer hours you're willing to complete to receive a piece of art, the highest bidder is the winner! 

You will have one year to complete your volunteer hours, tracked through United Way, and you can take home your winning piece of artwork upon completion.
