Gennext Kelowna & The OYP Collective
in partnership withGlobal Citizen Kelowna present…
TimeDRIVE is the first event of its kind in the Okanagan, offering volunteer opportunities, a silent auction, and a social event for young professionals. Hosted by Gennext Kelowna and the OYP Collective, in partnership with Global Citizen Kelowna, to be held Friday, March 1 at the Laurel Packing House from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.
Join us with hundreds of young professionals who will be connecting with global and local not-for-profit organizations via a truly unique silent auction, and socializing with great food, drinks, and live music.
Participation will give you the chance to win great prizes including local art by pledging your 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.
Not only will great connections occur between non-profits and young professionals, but the timeDRIVE Social will also highlight local organisations and opportunities to give back to the community.
Thanks to our awesome partners tickets are only $15
