CEO SLEEPOUT EVENT: President Sheng Shen, Treasurer Raymond Tan and Members BangZhao  Pan and YaYong Zheng taking part.

5 Chinese CEOs sleeping out as homeless persons to raise funds for the homeless in WA

The St Vinnies De Paul CEO Sleepout has been taking place in Australia and also WA for the last 5 years. The event is organised so that CEOs and captains of industry can draw the problem of the homeless person to the attention of the public.

The 2014 Vinnies CEO Sleepout will be held on Thursday 19 June at the WACA, Perth. The event will take place on the same night in every state and territory across Australia, with business and community leaders signing up to experience homelessness for one night this winter.  
This year’s event celebrates 5 years of raising awareness of homelessness across Australia as well as having raised over three million dollars to support the Society’s aim of halving homelessness by 2020 in WA.
In the last 5 years, 420 business and community leaders have risen to the challenge of raising awareness of homelessness in WA. Past event fundraising results:
  • In 2013, 108 participants raised over $1.1 million dollars to support Vinnies homeless services in WA.
  • In 2012, 106 participants helped to raise $822,704 in Western Australia.
  • In 2011, 107 participants registered to sleep out on a cold winter night and the event raised $615,644.
  • The first national Vinnies CEO Sleepout was held in 2010, with 99 West Australian business and community leaders braving the cold and sleeping rough for a night in winter. Their efforts raised a total of $474,185.
This year, the Asian community is strongly represented by the following Asian CEOs:
(a)    Sheng Shen of Mozart Patisserie:
(b)   Ban Zhao PAN of Ever Nature Pty Ltd:
(c)    Wing Lam of Omni Design Pty Ltd :
(d)   Ya Yong Zheng of Nishi Japanese Restaurant :
(e)   Raymond Tan of Tan and Tan Lawyers:
If you wish to support them, just go to their link above with your credit card to sponsor them.
All donations are tax deductible.
The 5 Asian leaders have signed on to sleep in the cold for 1 night to experience what it is like to be homeless and living in the streets of Perth. They will only be able to have a blanket and cardboard provided by the organisers.
They have a bread roll and soup for the night to sustain them.
Raymond Tan has been sleeping out as a homeless lawyer for 5 years taking part every year since the event started. This year he has persuaded the other 4 Asian leaders to join him in a night of discomfort, cold and maybe wet rain so that the homeless in WA can be helped from their fundraising.
This is the first year that there are so many Asian CEOs taking part and they should be supported as much as possible.
Here’s how your donation can help:
  • $50 can provide a meal and educational resource for a disadvantaged child.
  • $100 can help ensure a family keeps its power on this winter.
  • $200 provides emergency accommodation and food to a family in crisis.
  • $500 could relocate and establish a homeless person into one of the Society’s homeless accommodation services.
  • $1,000 would pay the rent for a family facing eviction from their home.
It is time for the Asian community to get behind this worthwhile project to help those less fortunate than themselves.
