Last year we tragically lost Troy in a house fire, that day we lost a part of our family.
We danced to our awesome live muso Crocq (which included many intense dance-offs), listened to our CEO Rick discuss the future of Soul, took part in a fun and heated auction that raised over $2,500! Sleepers were also treated to catered tours of Soul Café and before bed snacked on pizza and doughnuts. There were also fire pits, delicious food for purchase thanks to the Rotary Club of Wallsend-Maryland, plenty of games and a whole lot of family fun. It was a great night of true community.
During the night local legend Garth Russel hosted a live Zoom alongside Soul advocate Jodi O’Connor. The Zoom featured heart-warming guest stories, interviews with Soul volunteers & sleepers and plenty other special features. The virtual Sleepout concluded with a live broadcast of Rick’s speech.
