The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is back for 2021 with a hybrid in-person and online event where people can participate in different ways and make a significant impact in the community.
This year Vinnies is aiming to raise $630,000 to support delivery of their services across the Canberra/Goulburn region that help break the cycle of poverty and homelessness and mitigate the impact that COVID-19 has had in the community in the last year.
The in-person event will be held at the National Arboretum Canberra, where participants can sleep out at this iconic site or pre book to sleep in their cars at the venue. Participants will also have the option of attending the event virtually from all across the Canberra/Goulburn region. They will join the live-stream and sleep out in their cars, backyards or on their couches.
This year participants can also join the Deep Sleeper Club challenge and agree to raise a minimum $20,000 by 17th June. Those who achieve this target will receive multiple incentives on the night such as a Vinnies jumper for an extra layer of warmth and special recognition as a valued member of the Deep Sleeper Club.
