Vinnies CEO Sleepout
Thank you to Principal Anita Zocchi who has spent a night out in the cold supporting and raising funds for the Vinnies CEO Sleepout. Behind every dollar raised from the Sleepout is the potential to not only provide crucial assistance to people experiencing homelessness but to make inroads to addressing the very causes of homelessness with the aim of breaking the cycle of homelessness permanently for as many people as possible.
Anita, along with 81 other South Australian CEOs, slept out in the cold and rain of Victoria Square, experiencing for one night what over 100,000 Australians experience every night. Anita has so far raised over $3500 for Vinnies and if you would like to make a donation to this worthy cause by sponsoring Anita go to https://www.ceosleepout.org.au/ceos/sa-ceos/anita-zocchi/
