At SleepOut, this coming April 3, 2020, we get a chance to shine a light on the nearly 3,000 people experiencing homelessness in Palm Beach County, and help the homeless help themselves. In this profound community event, you will hear stories of success from former clients, participate in a candle lighting ceremony, and if you choose, sleep under the stars, or SleepIn. With children’s activities, performers and more, this event continues to be one of Palm Beach County’s most popular functions of the year, and a Lord’s Place signature fundraising event.

 

We Are Grateful! 

Sunshine greeted close to 600 attendees at The Lord’s Place 12th Annual SleepOut last Friday, April 5. The event started an hour earlier and had twice as many activities thanks to our friends at Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, including a train, bounce houses, balloon art and horses! The theme “We are Family” abounded as we greeted clients, volunteers, supporters and staff – all who have become our community family.

Even though light rain came around 6:30, it was just a reminder of what our clients go through on a daily basis. Everyone gathered for a program full of stories and songs that were uplifting and inspirational.

As promised, The Honorable Ann Brown matched the $300,000 that the community worked tirelessly to raise – the surprise came when she also matched the additional $14,000 that was raised and another gracious friend of The Lord’s Place, Anne Kelly donated $75,000.

The grand total for the event will surpass $700,000!

On behalf of our clients, and those we serve, we are beyond grateful for the overwhelming support from our community family. These funds will be used for the life-changing programs and services of The Lord’s Place. Thank you!
