Overview

ArtWorks Detroit – Online

Normally, our ArtWorks fundraiser would feature a live and silent auction, musical entertainment, appetizers, an open bar, and more. In consideration of our online format, this year’s art auction will be free of charge and we welcome you to reimagine this experience with us in the comfort of your own home. This year, Matrix will utilize Clickbid, a safe and powerful tool for online auctions that has been utilized throughout the world to provide a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Since March, we have been able to provide food and care packages to hundreds of families in need and will continue to answer the call of our community with your help. Generally, we also operate the largest Head Start program for underserved children in Detroit, the largest HIV/STD prevention programs in metro-Detroit, and have programs for all ages.

What will you tell people you did to help the most vulnerable population during COVID-19? Partner with Matrix Human Services to help us continue doing the work on the front lines.
