It’s just one night for business leaders, but it could make all the difference for those doing it tough on Australia’s streets.

And this year’s annual Vinnies CEO sleep-out, on June 22 at the Sydney Cricket Ground, aims to raise $2.3 million for early intervention programs to help the 105,000 people who sleep homeless across the nation every night.

“There’s no postcode involved in this; anybody living anywhere could find themselves homeless,” St Vincent de Paul Society NSW president Denis Walsh said.

“It’s an extremely important event, it’s one night of the year for the CEOs to identify with what it’s like to sleep on the street but it makes a big difference.”
