The 2017 Sleepout as a homeless lawyer
I survived the 2017 CEO Sleepout.
In fact having done this for 8 years, I actually know all the spaces that can be used by a homeless person if they were sleeping at the WACA.
This year, I had Pierre Yang, Sean Shwe and Steve Farano for company. I showed them around the places available at the WACA. The spaces ranged from 3, 4 or 5-stars homeless spaces. All of them opted for the 4- stars location which had a view of the WACA at night.
I believe that is what a homeless person would do. Find the most comfortable space available to spend the night.
Australia wide, we raised $5.18M and in WA we raised $579K.
This year I have again been so blessed with the support from my friends and clients.
I raised $36,525 beating all records from my previous 7 sleepouts.
I was ranked no. 2 in WA and no. 13 Australia wide.
I could not have done that without the support of all of you.
Some even donated more than once this year including Denning from James Chong Lawyers, Carol and Gerhard from Coffee Club and Duncan Hackman.
I received a few more large anonymous donations in the sums of $975.00, $750 and $500.
Thank you whoever you are.
There was a large donation which I managed to trace to my golfing friend Susan Zhang.
Many have supported me every year since the first time I took part and I am honoured and humbled. Thanks.
Hopefully, I can count on all of you again next year.
