OzSizzle is a BBQ with a difference! It’s a an opportunity for friends, family or work colleagues to get together over a delicious shared meal this summer while raising money for OzHarvest. For every $1 provided to OzHarvest, we can supply 2 meals to someone in need.

CEO SleepoutEnergy Skills Queensland will be Queensland’s first all-female CEO Sleepout® team commit to fighting homelessness.  Penelope Twemlow has announced the all-female fundraising team for this year’s event. The team will fight homelessness in their sleep alongside 200 other business, government and community leaders at the Brisbane Vinnies CEO Sleepout® under the Story Bridge on Thursday 22 June.

In 2016, the CEO Sleepout® raised more than $1million in Queensland, and attracted more female CEO’s than ever before. St Vincent de Paul Society Queensland CEO, Peter Maher, said the Vinnies CEO Sleepout® helps make a real difference in the lives of those who are experiencing homelessness.
