Metro Inclusive Health continues to provide vital support to kids, teens, and adults across the Tampa Bay region, even during this difficult time. Through virtual communication platforms, the nonprofit has continued to engage and care for the community. METRO has recently coordinated Trans Day of Visibility Virtual Flag Raffles — and has partnered with artists across the city to create inclusive designs that break down barriers.

One of the most recent auctions featured prolific artist, and owner of MIZE Gallery, Chad Mize. The auction along raised more than $700. Other participating artists include John Gascot and Hannah Powell.

How the virtual auctions work

Just donate to METRO’s Facebook campaign in $10 increments. Every $10 increment gets you one raffle entry to win the featured piece of art. All proceeds from the raffle go directly to program support that’s so vital in the current climate.

In 2019 alone, METRO saw more than 2,400 people participate in their programs across the region.

On Wednesday, April 8th at noon, METRO will host the raffle drawing for each flag. Join them as they broadcast the winners LIVE to Facebook and announce the total amount raised.
