Bendigo Executive and Directors Sleepout (BEDS)

Wednesday, 21 July 2010 - Thursday, 22 July 2010

Sleeping out for homeless youth

 BEDS is about local company directors and executives experiencing homelessness by spending a night out under the stars.  For members of the Young Professional Network this will be a great opportunity to network with some of Bendigo’s high profile community and business leaders. 

The Bendigo Executive and Director Sleepout (BEDS) will be held in the Civic Gardens, Bendigo, beginning at 8pm on Wednesday 21 July. 

The City of Greater Bendigo has already thrown its support behind this fundraiser with Mayor Rod Campbell registered to take part and announcing that BEDS will be the Mayoral Charity Event for 2010.

Participants will be encouraged to bring along a sleeping bag and bunk down under the stars to experience a wintery night in Bendigo. BEDS will conclude with a breakfast for participants the following morning.

 We are confident of registering more than 200 locally based company executives and directors – the $300 (minimum) registration fee will go directly towards St Luke’s youth projects and programs.  BEDS is a joint initiative of St Luke’s and Strategem Community Foundation, with the aim of not only raising more than $40,000 for St Luke’s youth programs and projects but importantly, providing a better understanding of what it is like to be homeless in our community.

 This is an exciting initiative and one which, even in its early planning days, is generating significant interest among the CEO, director and senior management circles of Bendigo.

 We look forward to your participation in this important community event and will be back in touch following your registration with further details about the event.
