Lucky number seven? The 2017 CEO Sleepout on Thursday, June 22, will mean Lejo Ouwendyk, Managing Director of Kennerlys, has rolled out his sleeping bag and participated for seven years in a row in this worthy event. So while number seven might be lucky for you as you dream away in your warm bed each night, it’s not a lucky number for over 100,000 thousand Australians who sadly still sleep rough every night. Along with over 1300 CEOs around the nation, Lejo wants to change the luck of our homeless and raise funds to provide these people with the proper shelter, food, care and support to live a fulfilling life.
