New changes to CEO Sleepout to be announced!

On behalf of the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ's CEO, Stefano Grande, and Homelessness Committee Chair, Ari Driver, you will be pleased to hear that the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ and End Homelessness Winnipeg will be partnering to enhance the CEO Sleepout, among other exciting initiatives. Subsequently, to ensure alignment, we will be delaying our CEO Sleepout, which was scheduled Sept. 29, 2016 to early 2017.

Please stay tuned as we hope you will continue your participation and fundraising efforts. For more information, contact:

Year after year, the CEO Sleepout raises awareness and funds to end homelessness, and in doing so, proves that Winnipeg is a caring community that works together to build a stronger city. It will take our entire community working together, including government, private sector, and non-profit organizations to help end homelessness. City Council has committed $150,000 per year to fund the United Way's Plan to End Homelessness, and as Mayor, and as a CEO Sleepout participant for 3 years, I am proud to be a part of a change for the better. 

- Mayor Brian Bowman, City of Winnipeg
