The Event

Real Estate Sleep Out is hosted by Cooley Auctions and is intended to raise money and awareness for Youth Off The Streets.

All monies raised will go directly to Youth Off The Streets.

Youth Off The Streets will collect information on Real Estate Sleep Out participants and donors. This information will be used to improve the campaign and to potentially contact donors to assist in other fundraising, education and marketing. You agree that you have provided consent for your personal information to be used by Youth Off The Streets in this way.

 The Event requires participants to:
  1.  sleep outdoors without shelter;
  2.  sleep exposed to the elements including rain; and
  3.  sleep without bedding other than a sleeping bag and/or swag, pillow and a cardboard sheet.

Participants conduct their activity independently from Youth Off The Streets and Cooley Auctions entirely at their own risk. For your own sake you need to ensure that you observe all required safe practices (as appropriate for your situation) and that you conduct yourself in a responsible manner. 

Your participation in the Real Estate Sleep Out event is voluntary and is not covered by Youth Off The Streets insurance.

By registering, you are agreeing for your name, photograph and/or video footage of you to be used for promotional or advertising purposes. If you do not wish your involvement to be promoted or your photo or video footage of you not to be used, please make this known to the Event team upon registration.

Strictly no alcohol is to be brought to or consumed at the event.

Event registrations and participation are strictly for adults aged 18 years and over (except for the event in regional Victoria at Yarrawonga Foreshore Rotunda VIC 3730).
