The night will be an experiential no-frills affair.Participants will begiven nothingmore than a sheet of cardboard and a cup of soup before hearing from guest speakers and braving the cold, bedding down for the night.
The Sleepout hopes to raise awareness and to raise $20,000 for Freds Place, the only homeless drop-in service in Tweed Heads where the funds raised by local will stay local. Since April, Freds Place has provided more than 100 hot meals, 25 showers and 15 loads of laundry each day.
