Sleep Out: Executive Edition
On Nov. 17, 2016, business leaders across North America will sleep out so kids don’t have to as they raise money and awareness for homeless youth. This unique experiential event is also very impactful, as over 92% of all funds go directly to Covenant House programs and youth.

Sleep Out 2015
On Nov. 19, 2015, seventy-one of the city’s top business and
community leaders slept out and raised more than $1 million for homeless
kids at Covenant House. With only a sleeping bag and cardboard,
participants in the fourth annual Covenant House Executive Sleep Out
spent the night on the cold pavement in freezing temperatures.
Led by Honorary Chair Jeffrey Orridge, CFL commissioner,
participants included Carmen Fortino, Metro Ontario division head and
senior vice president, Doug Mizzi, TJX Canada president, Christina
Woronchak, American Express Global Business Travel vice president,
business development, Dan Payne, a star of CTV’s Alice I Think!, Patrick
Nangle, Purolator president, Amanda Lang, journalist, Police Chief Mark
Saunders, and Event Committee Chair Duncan Hannay, president, Davis
& Henderson Ltd.
During the evening, the group toured the house, the neighbourhood and
sleepers returning for their third year attended a panel discussion on
issues facing homeless youth. They also sat down for discussions with
current and former youth.
The local effort was part of an international event that
happened simultaneously at 15 other Covenant House sites across North
America, including Vancouver.
