Chris Christofi sets $120,000 target for seventh Vinnies CEO Sleepout

·

Melbourne businessman, philanthropist, and Vinnies CEO Sleepout Ambassador Chris Christofi, founder and CEO of Reventon, has set an ambitious fundraising target of $120,000 as part of this year’s mission to combat homelessness in Australia.

Christofi will be one of thousands of CEOs sleeping rough across the country later this month as part of the annual Vinnies CEO Sleepout.

Christofi will be participating in his seventh sleepout and has raised over $750,000 to date – as part of his ongoing push to help people ‘sleeping rough’ across the country.

Late last month, Christofi raised almost $80,000 at the ‘Lead With Kindness’ gala in one night. These funds are enough to feed over 2,500 people and provide emergency accommodation for over 150 families in crisis. This success underscores the generosity and support of the community towards combating homelessness.

This year’s Melbourne Vinnies CEO Sleepout will occur on Thursday, 20 June 2024, at the University of Melbourne. Hundreds of business, community, and government leaders will sleep outdoors to raise awareness and funds. Last year, the Melbourne Sleepout raised over $1 million, and this year aims to surpass that figure, helping even more vulnerable Australians.

Over the years, Christofi’s commitment to the Vinnies CEO Sleepout has made a significant impact. His fundraising efforts have already contributed $768,8181 to the cause.

“This event is more than just a fundraiser; it’s about raising awareness and driving meaningful change,” Christofi said.

He invites everyone to support his campaign and help him end homelessness.

“Your participation and donations are crucial. If you have anything to spare, please give generously and remember that sometimes; a little means a lot. Together, we can make a difference,” he said.

The Vinnies CEO Sleepout invites business, community, and government leaders to sleep outdoors to raise awareness and funds for Australians experiencing homelessness. More information is available at the Vinnies CEO Sleepout Website.
