Gold Coast CEOs Sleep Rough To Raise Money For The Homeless

$350,000 raised from CEO Sleepout

Gold Coast CEOs Sleep Rough To Raise Money For The Homeless

Nearly 200 big bosses and city leaders have spent the night out in the elements, to raise awareness and funds to address homelessness on the Gold Coast. 

Titans CEO Graham Annesley was among the big names who slept rough at Cbus Super Stadium on Thursday, with just a few sheets of cardboard to keep them warm.

It was all for the annual Vinnies CEO Sleepout.

"It was a cold night but one night in the year is really nothing on what the homeless face on the streets," said executive officer of the South Coast diocese for St Vincent de Paul Queensland Chris Martin.

"On any given night up to 1,700 people are sleeping rough on the Gold Coast," he said.

$350,000 has so far been raised to support locals struggling to keep a roof over their heads.
