This year the St Vincent de Paul Society’s CEO Sleepout went national and in the process raised an impressive $2.4 million for the homeless!
The Managing Director of Staging Connections, Tony Chamberlain, has thanked the generous sponsors who enabled him to double his contribution to the 2010 Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
Last year Tony raised over $3500 – this year due to the tremendous support of the Staging Connections team along with generous family, friends and corporate sponsors, Tony raised in excess of $7,000.
Chamberlain along with 180 other Sydney based CEO’s slept out in the cold on Thursday 17th June to raise the awareness of and funds for Australia’s homeless as part of St Vincent de Paul Society’s homeless program.
Staging Connections is a national partner of the 2010 CEO Sleepout and supported the St Vincent de Paul Society with pre-event marketing services such as webstreaming and event staging at the sleepouts across the country.
“I want to thank the Staging Connections team across Australia; their tremendous efforts not only assisted with the delivery of the webstream and event staging services for each of the CEO Sleepouts, they also contributed over $700 to my campaign with fundraisers in each office including an outdoor movie night,” Tony said.
