CEO Sleepout – 23rd June 2016
June 23, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout began in 2005 as a community event in Sydney. It has since grown and in 2010 became a national event raising more than $24 million since its inception. This year there are 11 locations represented across all states and territories. Over the years, the Vinnies CEO Sleepout has built a solid reputation as a signature event that attracts high profile business leaders to effect change and raise money to support people experiencing homelessness. The Sleepout is a unique way for business leaders to actively combat the issue of homelessness by raising funds and experiencing a small portion of what it is like to sleep rough for a night. The event is different to other fundraisers; there are no frills and fancy dinners here, just a night of sleeping out in the cold with nothing more than the clothes on your back; a sheet of cardboard and a cup of soup.
