Metro Wellness & Community Centers announces annual benefit, honorees

Metro Wellness & Community Centers will hold its annual fundraiser on Nov. 10, benefitting the organization’s diverse lineup of LGBTQ programming and honoring community leaders.

This year’s celebration, presented by Mail Meds pharmacy for the sixth consecutive year, will be a “PeaCocktail Party” held at the Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport from 7-11 p.m. The organization describes the gathering as a bold and colorful party, celebrating the beauty of Tampa Bay’s diversity. Metro will honor three outstanding individuals, the organization shared Oct. 24, for their excellence and leadership in the Tampa Bay community. Honorees include St. Petersburg Deputy Mayor Dr. Kanika Tomalin, Christina Burke and Todd Richardson.

“The most important thing about it is that it funds the LGBTQ+ programming that is not funded by grants or any other sources of income which come into Metro,” Metro Vice President of Marketing and Communication Brian Bailey says of the gathering. “It’s a great opportunity to make sure that we can continue to provide those resources to the LGBTQ+ community, specifically to seniors, youth and the transgender community.”
