Sleep Out/Speak Out: Virtual Edition

Saturday, June 6, 2020

Spend a night under the stars in your backyard (or ANYWHERE) to raise awareness and much-needed funds to support our homeless neighbors, who need our help now more than ever. Sleep Out/Speak Out is not about pretending to be homeless; it’s an act of solidarity—to give you a tiny insight into this reality—and a fundraiser, with all proceeds directly supporting our region’s most vulnerable residents.


$20 registration + $80 suggested fundraising minimum

Event Schedule
We will be live streaming throughout the evening, including a bedtime story read by Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple and a lullaby set performed by local musician and Sedgwick County Commissioner Lacey Cruse!

7pm – Welcome remarks; top fundraisers & trivia winners announced
7:30pm – House-building project from event toolkit (great for kids!)
8pm – Lullaby set performed by Commissioner Cruse
8:30pm – Bedtime story read by Mayor Whipple; closing remarks
9pm(ish) – Sunset means bedtime! Enjoy your night under the stars and make sure you post your photos, poetry and more on our event page.


Sleep Out so others don’t have to, then Speak Out about this important issue in our community!

Thank you to our Event Sponsors!
