One night isn't a lot, but it can make a whole lot of difference

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn't have to be that way. For a fifth time, Sportsbet is taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need.

For one night, members of our Leadership Team including Barni Evans, Jules Norton Selzer, Pete Harman, Megan Collins, Michael Verhoeven and Michael Foster will be sleeping outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness.

To help break the devastating cycle of homelessness, we need your support. Will you help us reach our target? Your donation can make a huge difference to people who need it most.

So far this year we helped provide

465

Individual support programs

1220

Beds

4882

Meals
