Spectrum Sleep Out, Burlington, Vermont

Mikey van Gulden, owner Chocolate Thunder Security, talks keeping people safe

We were there for Spectrum’s 4th Annual Sleep Out. The Burlington Free Press was out in the rain and cold collecting interviews and posting them on Livestream.com throughout the event. Here’s an update from Mikey of how the night was going;

We are so very proud to be a part of such a great Burlington, Vermont event!

Here’s a little more about the event posted by Eva Sollberger from Stuck in Vermont:

 

3/26/15: The 4th Annual Spectrum Sleep Out was held last Thursday on the lawn of the Unitarian Universalist Church in the heart of downtown Burlington. One hundred fifteen business and community leaders raised $192,000 by sleeping outside and showing their support for the homeless and at-risk teens that Spectrum serves. Cold temperatures, rain and mud didn’t dampen the participants’ enthusiasm, many of whom sleep out every year.

Eva also met some students and their parents who raised almost $6,000 by sleeping out Thursday night at Browns River Middle School in Jericho. Over the weekend, 379 students participated in Spectrum’s Student Sleep Out and raised $43,000, bringing the total amount to $235,000.
