Making a Difference to Homelessness

21 May 2018

Executives at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC) have been galvanised into helping to make a difference to Queensland’s homeless crisis.

 They were horrified to hear the stats:

 To help address the shocking statistics, the five executives have joined the Vinnies CEO Sleepout and pledged to raise $10,000 as a team. In return, they’ll join dozens of other executives and CEOs who have committed to sleeping in the open at Cbus Stadium on June 21 – the longest night during Winter.

 GCCEC General Manager Adrienne Readings said the team were committed.

 “It’s such a small sacrifice for us but we know it will make such a big difference in the life of individuals or families who are experiencing rough times,” she said.

 “Just $50 provides a warm blanket and a meal so every little bit counts.”

 The GCCEC team is General Manager Adrienne Readings, Deputy General Manager Raelene Barry, Executive Manager – Operations Greg Zahn, Executive Manager – Finance Nick Jeffrey and Director of Sales Michelle Mann.
