Cool $447k not bad for a night’s work

Never let it be said that the Gold Coast lacks heart.  The final tally from the Vinnies CEO Sleepout is in and the 142 registered participants have raised a staggering $447,704.  Solheil Abedian from Sunland and Clive van Deventer of Bartercard ran neck and neck for the honour of top fundraiser.  Mr van Deventer edged it with $67,424 to Mr Abedian’s $63,915.  Never one to rest on his cardboard bed, chief organiser Colin Wheeler from Document Solutions has come up with a cunning plan: “This year our participation rate was greater than Adelaide and Perth so next year I want each of our participants to bring along another – buy one, get one not for free.” Well done to all.
