Unable to attend? You can still help The Straz go on.
For more than three decades, the not-for-profit Straz Center has been an anchor institution for the Tampa Bay region, serving 700,000 people each year.
Today, our ability to carry out our mission is in a perilous condition because of the COVID-19 impact, but we believe wholeheartedly in the role the Straz Center can play in our community’s recovery.
As an organization that normally relies on ticket sales for 80% of its income, we now must rely on charitable gifts to help us survive the challenges that face us. Together, we will ensure The Straz remains a safe place for shared cultural experiences that offer a better quality of life for everyone in our community.
