One more sleep until the Big Sleep Out, where a group of 74 hardy captains of industry and various social crusaders will sleep rough for one night in Auckland to help raise money and awareness for the LifeWise Trust and help bring homelessness to an end. And they’re on the hunt for donations.
The group includes two former mayors, four members of Parliament, one Auckland councillor, four Sir Peter Blake Trust Emerging Leaders, plus an array of other brave souls from the business community and the marcomms sector, including BrandWorld’s David MacGregor, The Goat Farm’s Vaughn Davis, The Wine Vault’s Jayson Bryant, Jucy’s entrepreneur of the year Tim Alpe, Bizzone’s Sarah Trotman, The Common Room’s Hayden Raw, Helen Steemson and Keren Phillips, IAG’s Nick Jones, Curious Design’s Simon Diprose, SublimeNZ’s Robert Bruce, and probably a few others. You can sponsor participants here. Go on.
Last year participants bedded down in the discomfort of a covered car-park. This year they’ll be in the open air. And, to add to the challenge, the forecast isn’t looking very good.
