In celebration of our progress in the past year at OAAA, and just in time for our 2012 Annual Members Exhibition, The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is kicking off its very first Five Buck Facebook Fundraiser.

Okay Artfans! This is the chance you’ve been waiting for!

Have you been thinking how much you love the Alternator recently? We know, we know – you’ve NOTICED all the changes we’ve made in the past twelve months – so many more events, great quality exhibitions (as always) and our super-famous members gallery that finally gives you some space to show off your best works – even if they are works in progress. We have even more great ideas in store for the next twelve months.

"So", you might say, "that’s great that the Alternator is doing so well – but why are you spamming my inbox telling me things I already know?" Well, friends, here comes the hitch! In celebration of our progress and just in time for our 2012 Annual Members Exhibition, The Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art is kicking off its very first Five Buck Facebook Fundraiser.

We’re not asking you for millions here, but we’ve got over 500 friends on Facebook, and if each one of you (and maybe some of your friends’ friends) donate 5 bucks to our awesome charity, we could raise $2500 and meet our fundraising goal for 2012. This money isn’t going into anyone’s pocket – it helps us keep the doors open, keeps great artists like Swintak, Jordan Bennett and David Wilson visiting our fine city, and keeps the snacks on the table and the drinks on ice for our exciting events and opening receptions.

$5 - the cost of a fancy-schmancy coffee at any of your local watering holes – makes an unbelievable difference to our financial future, and makes us able to spend 2013 doing what we do best – supporting our local creative community and making sure we leave a lasting impact on the arts and culture scene in the city, the valley and beyond!

So, you say, you’ve convinced me – I’ll give you 5 Bucks ... but how???

In the true spirit of alliteration that inspired the Five Buck Facebook Fundraiser, follow the link on our dedicated Facebook page, and watch the tally grow. For the duration of our members show, from November 9 – December 31, we’ll be tracking our progress. Best of all – submit your name when you make your donation into a draw to win free Alternator Membership for the next three years, or one of three gift certificates from local independent shops like Milkcrate Records --- wowza!

Or you can donate in person – pop into the gallery and while you are here, see the 2012 Members’ Show : Revision.

Of course, you don’t need to stick to five bucks. If you’re loaded, donate more! We can offer a charitable tax receipt for all donations over $20. And if you’d like to help us even more, share this campaign with your own circle of friends by posting it as your Facebook status for a day. Let's see how many five-buck donations you can get!
