Tonight, our Managing Director, Ari Koutsougeras, will take part in this year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout to help raise funds to support the many Australians who are in need.
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is held every year on one of the longest and coldest nights of the year, and sees many business and community leaders sleep outdoors in order to raise funds for the St Vincent de Paul Society to ensure they can continue to provide essential services to those who are at risk of, or who are currently, experiencing homelessness. These services include crisis accommodation, food, healthcare, counselling, education, employment and support to find a permanent home.
This year, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CEO Sleepout has been transformed into an interactive online event but the goal remains the same – to raise much needed funds for these essential services. The event will see Ari join many other leaders who will choose to sleep in their car, backyard or couch, to gain a sense of the housing insecurity that many Australians face every night, while raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
