Today House CEO Sleepout
2016 CEO Sleepout Thursday, September 15, 2016 at KR Barkman Park from 7pm-7am.
The Board of Directors of Today House invited community leaders to participate in the 4th annual CEO Sleepout on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at KR Barkman Park in Steinbach.
The Sleepout was a great opportunity to meet others in the community who wanted to make a difference by helping Today House create awareness about those experiencing homelessness in our community, and to raise funds.
As you may know, Today House does not receive ongoing government funding. As such, events like the CEO Sleepout are essential to funding this important work and ensuring that we are able to offer emergency shelter to those in need. Minimum fundraising per participant was $100. Our goal to raise $50,000.00 was exceeded – we raised $56,000.00! Thank you for supporting Today House in our effort to provide emergency, overnight shelter to those in greatest need.
2016 details below … please check back for 2017 information.
Do one thing today, for a better community!
If you are a community leader, register to be part of this very meaningful event.
To register or for further information, please email Simone Penner, Chair of Today House, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 204-371-1133.
