About the CEO Sleepout:
The Vinnies CEO Sleepout began as a local community venture in Sydney’s Parramatta in 2006, the brainchild of a local business leader, Bernard Fhon, Managing Director of Tactical Solutions.
With the help of Vinnies, business associates, volunteers and his family, Bernard held the inaugural event on 21 June 2006 at Sydney Olympic Park.
In 2010, the event went national and exceeded expectations, attracting almost 700 CEOs in 7 cities nationally and raising $2.9 million to directly assist people experiencing homelessness.
In 2013, some regional events were also added in NSW in Wollongong and Newcastle. With over 1,000 participating business leaders, the event surpassed the $5.3 million fundraising mark.
In 2015, the event celebrated a milestone with its 10th anniversary.
Every dollar the Vinnies CEO Sleepout has raised helps provide crucial assistance to people experiencing homelessness, with the aim of breaking the cycle of homelessness.
In 2017, the reality is that whilst we should celebrate all that we have achieved together, we must also remember that so much more still needs to be done.
