This year’s Vinnies CEO Sleepout was set to take place at Memorial Drive next month, however the COVID-19 pandemic has seen the event take on a virtual form with Tennis SA CEO, Debbie Sterrey set to take part on Thursday 18 June.
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout is an annual event to raise money for people experiencing homelessness or at risk of finding themselves without a safe place to call home. Money raised goes to Vinnies’ not-for-profit services, which include food, accommodation, education, counselling, employment and health programs.
Debbie will be joining business, government and community leaders across Australia in sleeping out. The goal is to ensure that Vinnies’ vital services can stay up and running – meeting the increasing demand as the impacts of COVID-19, sky-rocketing energy prices along with other social and economic pressures keep homelessness on the rise.
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout happens for just one night, but it raises vital funds to support people all year round. Donations can be made at https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/fundraisers/debbiesterrey/adelaide.
