Melbourne businessman, philanthropist, and Vinnies CEO Sleepout Ambassador Chris Christofi, founder and CEO of Reventon, has set a fundraising target of raising $120,000 as part of this year’s mission to combat homelessness in Australia.

Christofi will be one of thousands of CEOs sleeping rough across the country later this month as part of the annual Vinnies CEO Sleepout.

Participating in his seventh sleepout, Christofi has raised over $750,000 to date as part of his ongoing push to help people ‘sleeping rough’ across the country.

As of this writing, he has raised almost $90,000 toward this year’s goal.

This year’s Melbourne Vinnies CEO Sleepout will occur on Thursday June 20 at the University of Melbourne.

Hundreds of business, community, and government leaders will sleep outdoors to raise awareness and funds. Many of which are of Greek background like Christofi.

“This event is more than just a fundraiser; it’s about raising awareness and driving meaningful change,” he said in a media release sent to Neos Kosmos.

“Your participation and donations are crucial. If you have anything to spare, please give generously and remember that sometimes; a little means a lot.

“Together, we can make a difference.”

Last month he raised almost $80,000 at the ‘Lead With Kindness’ gala in a single night.

These funds will go to feeding over 2,500 people and providing emergency accommodation for over 150 families in crisis.
