Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout Challenge

WGE are proud to support the local communities in which we live. Many of our team members take part in personal fundraising charities and our WGE community is always extremely supportive.  It could be a bake sale, chocolate selling or donating to a personal cause, the WGE teams personally take pride in helping each other out.

Our very own CEO, José Granado, was proud to take part in the Vinnie’s CEO sleepout 5th anniversary challenge on 19 June 2014. He was joined by another 110 community and business leaders who spent a night sleeping out at the WACA to help raise awareness and funds for homelessness.

“It was a great experience and it certainly made me much more aware of the extremely difficult challenges that face those less fortunate people that are out on our streets and face not only the environmental challenges associated with not having a roof over their head but also the very real stress of feeling unsafe at all times, something that is very real when you meet and talk to some of these people.” José Granado

With generous help he managed to raise in excess of $10,000 which put him in the top 25 fund raisers.
