Bring the Party Home with a House Party Pack

Join us in reimagining our highly anticipated 313 in the D event on Thursday, July 23 with a physical distant-friendly experience – House Party! Due to COVID-19, we have decided to change venues for 313 in the D this year. Rather than meeting on the rooftop, we’re bringing the party to your home with our House Party Packs!


Party Packs include all of the essentials for an in-home 313 in the D experience and have been sourced from local businesses.

Each party pack will include:

  • Taco kit prepared professionally in a Detroit-based restaurant
  • Flight of craft cocktail mixers curated by a Detroit-based mixologist
  • Sweets and treats from local small businesses in partnership with All Things Detroit
  • Signage for your virtual photo booth experience
  • A raffle ticket for a $100 gift card

Anyone who donates at least $100 for the 313 in the D experience through the link below will get a Party Pack delivered to their Metro Detroit location on Thursday, July 23 during a pre-scheduled window.

Let’s Party!

In addition to offering our Party Packs to those who donate $100 for 313 in the D/House Party, Matrix is hosting a virtual bash on July 23 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Unbox your Party Pack and enjoy a live DJ set and special programming, including virtual raffles. Our virtual celebration is open to all and will be streamed on a widely used platform.  There is no cost to tune in, yet registration is required.

It’s Your Lucky Night

Do you want to support Matrix, but can’t purchase a party pack or attend the virtual bash? We have completely virtualized our raffles and made them open to all Matrix supporters. Winners will be announced first during the live DJ set and an email will follow to the winning bidder. Simply register for the virtual bash and select the “raffle only” option when registering. Matrix will send bidding instructions closer to the event.

About 313 in the D // House Party

Going into its 7th year, 313 in the D is one of Matrix Human Services’ most impactful fundraisers. Funds raised from 313 in the D go towards programs and services for local youth and families at The Matrix Center. The Matrix Center is our thriving 60,000 square foot community center on Detroit’s east-side that serves more than 4,500 children and adults monthly. We offer an amazing array of programs aimed at educating children, supporting families, and rebuilding neighborhoods.

Normally held every year on a rooftop with panoramic views of Downtown Detroit, dinner, drinks, a DJ, a photo booth, and several experiential and product-based raffles, we have reimagined the event with a physical distant-friendly, yet equally impactful concept – House Party. All proceeds from the Party Pack donations, raffles, and sponsorship will be used to continue our life-changing work.
