On Thursday 21st November 2019, the Fundraising Institute of Australia awarded our Director, Colin Wheeler, the ‘Above and Beyond’ award, 1 of only 3 awards presented that night for the Gold Coast.
Put forward by the Qld State office of St Vincent de Paul, this was in recognition for the 6 years of involvement with the Vinnies CEO Sleepout.
Colin had individually raised $47,000, but more importantly used his networks in our city to encourage other business leaders to participate and raise collectively over $1,800,000. All of this money raised is being spent on exciting projects here on the Coast for emergency accommodation for the city’s homeless. 60% of which are Domestic Violence victims, kids under 18 and those suffering mental health issues.
If you are a CEO, Community Leader or can be an influential participant, check into www.ceosleepout.org.au and join us on 18th June 2020 .
