The Covenant House will present the Second Annual Sleep Out: Broadway Edition, where members of the Broadway community will spend the night sleeping on the streets outside the Covenant House to raise funds for homeless youth, Aug. 17.
“These are stars who have selflessly decided they want to walk in our kids’ shoes, and experience, if only for one night, some of what our kids go through,” said Covenant House president Kevin Ryan in a statement. “Their actions are an incredible show of support for the thousands of young people struggling to survive every night on our streets.”
Sleep Out: Broadway Edition, according to press notes, is a "one-night fundraising event, beginning with an evening of dialogue between formerly homeless teenagers and participating Sleepers. Kids share their stories and answer questions about their lives. After a light supper, tours of the shelter, and continued conversation, sleepers will receive cardboard boxes, sleeping bags, and a safe piece of pavement in a secure, enclosed and protected space for the night."
The event is open to any member of the theatrical community who has worked on Broadway, Off-Broadway or a national tour in any capacity. To reserve a sleeping bag, contact Colgan McNeil at firstname.lastname@example.org or (917) 261-3988.
