Night Without a Home Sleepout and Fundraiser at Wade Stadium

Saturday, Oct. 9

Hundreds of area residents will be sleeping outside Saturday, Oct. 9, at Wade Stadium in an effort to raise donations to aid the homeless in our community.

Night Without a Home Sleep Out and Fundraiser will include a homelessness demo along with music and many great speakers. Funds and items collected by participants will benefit the more than 500 homeless in our community at the Project Homeless Connect event to be held at the Washington Center on Oct. 28.

A Night Without a Home asks participants not just to learn about homelessness but to be part of the solution to raise awareness of homelessness in our own community by sleeping outside for a night. The event is also intended to raise donations that will help those in our community who don’t yet have the option of a warm bed. Participants will be joined by a group of speakers featuring residents who have experienced homelessness, faith leaders, and community leaders.

For more information you can call Scott at 218-590-0943 or send an e-mail to twinportsaction @ charter.net.

This is the first sleep out that I have the chance to go to since moving to Duluth in 2008 and I am very excited about it.The event this year is held at Wade Stadium for the first time and should prove to be a great event But that is only if everybody who is free on Saturday comes to the event.Which for the first time will have a charity softball game and Kid's Carnival.

I want to know what a "homelessness demo" is.  I've been homeless.  Used the services available.  I love the event.  Awareness is good.  Start a  dialogue.  I just can't figure out what the "demo" would be.
