Reggie’s Sleepout is an event held in Des Moines, Iowa at the Drake University outdoor stadium to benefit Youth and Shelter Services of iowa, an organization that serves homeless youth. Our very own Travis Lloyd has donated funds and performing talent to the event for the past three years and we are proud to support the event again in 2010.
Here’s how it goes…community members bring cardboard boxes, tarps, blankets, duct tape and whatever else they can think of to make huge cardboard homes in the outdoor stadium (cold!). There are plenty of activities for all members of the family and performances can be found throughout the event on various stages. At the end of the night, everyone goes to sleep n their cardboard box representing the importance of remembering the vast needs that our homeless youth have. Last year Reggie’s Sleepout raised over $150,000 and we aim to do even better this year. Check out a commercial from a previous year that Travis Lloyd donated the writing, vocals, and production for in part by producer Charles Means HERE.
