The 2015 Vinnies Sunshine Coast Vinnies Community Sleepout is TONIGHT.

After weeks of dedicated fundraising and raising awareness, more than 80 participants will experience a night of sleeping on the streets with only a piece of cardboard and a sleeping bag, a cup of soup and a bread roll as a meal.

All money raised goes directly back into the community to assist the Homeless Support Worker as they work with those facing homelessness or on the streets in the local area.

Donations can still be made at

Date:           Thursday 25 June

Time:           From 5:30pm to 7pm. Media are invited to stay for the official proceedings.
