On Thursday, July 14, NEXTNiagara will host its marquee event, Priceless, at the scenic Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate in Niagara-on-the-Lake. With over 200 expected attendees, the event will connect members of the emerging generation with volunteer opportunities at local not-for-profit organizations, while simultaneously supporting a showcase of local artists.
“Priceless is unique. There’s nothing like it in the Niagara region,” explains Stephanie Harper, Chair of NEXTNiagara. “It’s a creative event that promotes both local art and local volunteerism. It brings businesses, artists, non-profits, and Niagara’s emerging generation together and strengthens the community.”
Priceless is all about bidding with your time, not with your dime, meaning that pieces of art – created by local artists – will be auctioned off to the attendees who pledge the most volunteer hours as payment. The work of fifteen local artists will be up for auction, and the volunteer hours of the winning bidders can be worked off at any local charity or non-profit. Artists are paid fair market value for their work, thanks to the generous support of the event’s fourteen corporate sponsors, including title sponsors Niagara Community Foundation and PenFinancial Credit Union.
Tickets for Priceless are $40.00 plus taxes, and can be purchased here. For more information about the event, please visit www.pricelessniagara.com. The event will be held on Thursday, July 14 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
