Sleep Out Under the Stars – a Freo tradition

Did you know nearly 10,000 in Perth are homeless every night?

It’s easy to feel powerless in the face of such grim statistics, but there is more you can do.

Now in its third year, Sleep Out Under the Stars is a family-friendly fundraiser and awareness-raiser for homelessness.  Jointly presented by the University of Notre Dame and St. Pat’s, people from all over the community come together for a night each May to raise funds for St. Pat’s and learn more about current trends in homelessness.

Join us for an evening of live music, kids’ activities and true community spirit.  You’re welcome to come just for the evening or the more intrepid among you may like to bunk down with us for the night in beautiful Malloy Courtyard at the University.  It’s not exactly a genuine representation of how tough ife is for our clients, but it does give a glimpse into the challenges of life without a home.

Free soup and a roll is provided for dinner and the next morning you can tuck into a cooked breakfast.

Entertainment this year is provided by local favourites Satarvo as well as our own Starlight Hotel Choir.
