Collective to host Kelowna's first TimeDRIVE event

Global Citizen Kelowna will partner with Gennext and the OYP Collective to bring the first TimeDRIVE event to the Central Okanagan next Friday, March 1, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Laurel Packinghouse.

Tickets are $15/person and include a selection of appies and one beverage.

TimeDRIVE will enable young professionals to connect with global and local not-for-profit organizations via a truly unique silent auction, while socializing with great food, drinks, and live music.

Participation will give Kelowna’s young professionals the chance to win great prizes including local art by pledging time and skills rather than cash.

Many of Kelowna’s young professionals would like to give back to their community, however, are not sure where to start, who to ask, or how to demonstrate their skills in support of others less fortunate.

They don’t always have disposable income to donate, but they do possess valuable skills and energy that can be beneficial to not-for-profits in need. Successful bidders will have up to one year to complete their pledges.
